This week on Afrotensity, Mr. Comedy follows the evolution of black comedy in America. About his next broadcast, Mr. Comedy writes: “Listen as we trace the path of comedian Richard Pryor. Pryor is one of the most influential comedians of all time. Hear Redd Foxx, one of the primary influences for Pryor, and Paul Mooney, a writer for Pryor. I’ll also feature comedians who were directly influenced by Pryor: stand-up from the legendary Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, and Dave Chappelle.”

Afrotensity airs every Tuesday night at midnight (and check out the Afrotensity blog here).
