        I think Rich might’ve only seen Eddie as a threat cause he came from the time where there was only a select few black comedians who got to crossover into mainstream success and he probably felt that Eddie was coming for his spot. It was never personal. He just knew how the Hollywood game went. Once he started working with Eddie, he found out it was boring but love and respect. I don’t believe this dude at all. Eddie has never said anything bad about Rich at all. Every stand up special, every interview, etc. has never shown Eddie saying anything foul about Rich. Eddie did mention that there was tension at one point on Jerry Seinfeld’s show but he never “disrespected” Pryor in anyway. I think this dude is embellishing the truth.

          There would be no Eddie Murphy if it weren't
          for Richard Pryor. Yes, Eddie was the best
          imitator of Richard Pryor. That's 100.

              Dude has a comprehension problem! Conventional wisdom is: there is one black comic at a time and Eddie said Richard was looking at him like "This is the guy they have now to replace me.". I saw the Seinfeld coffee joint as well and Eddie wasn't a bit disrespectful.

                What Jerry Seinfeld said about Pryor to Eddie, and Eddie's response, did that really go down like that? I feel like this dude is takin it way outta context if it did, cuz I've never seen nor heard of Eddie havin nothin but praise to say about Pryor, he was one of Eddie's idols....

                  I love eddie, btu what happened to him was a phenomenon. Right place right time and a 21 year old kid ends up with one of if not the best stand up special in history. Eddie had not one clue how any of that happened, he just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
                  He didn't do the work, he didn't have to. He did stand up for like a grand total of 5 years, with some of the best writers ever.

                  What Pryor accomplished is far more admirable. Eddie is basically the Billy Ray Cyrus of Comedy.

                      Rashon Khan is soo right about Eddie imitating Richard because his early stand ups all seemed very much like that and Richard was definitely imitating Cosby in his stand ups as well until he eventually came to his own.

                        Richard tried to keep it professional.....to leave any guest waiting in your OWN home for 2hrs...that’s very disrespectful....that’s crazy Eddie didn’t like anybody ...probably jealous...but why ...the older black comics accepted you and took you in...smh I bet he sits back and laughs to himself that he’s one of the few alive and successful

                                                              Eddie states that Richard would leave places he'd "work out" in if he heard that Eddie was there. By Eddie's definition, a standup act is a workout. I'm going to poke a hole in that theory because I seriously cannot fathom Richard being a no-show at his own performance for the likes of Eddie. My dominant sign is Sagittarius. Richard was a Sagittarius. A lot of times, we (Sag's) explode in excellence when it comes down to something we are passionate about and love doing, but on the flip side, we are super meek and mild-mannered. Sagittarius has excellent discernment, and often see beneath surface shit. It's easy for us to see when we are liked or when someone is being a shady shit to us. The cool thing is, we'll act like we don't even see it, and still give people undeserving graces. If the whole "Eddie-left-Richard-waiting-for-two-hours" shit is actual, it would explain why Richard hung around that long, in addition to proving to someone with impaired discernment (Rashon in this case) that Richard was, in fact, being disrespected. It's safe to say that back in the day, Eddie was arrogant. Today, he seems to have mellowed out immensely, which brings me to believe that age had an awful lot to do with it. That can be said about Richard, too. The older you get, the less you give a damn about stupid shit. Whether or not a changing of the guard and/or Eddie's arrogance was a factor, they are both comedic legends in their own right. And that's just what the fuck it is.
