Sinbad looks like a fake person created from magazine cut outs of other people stuck together to make a new person

Dave Chappelle is Richard Pryor's and George Carlin's love child. Eddie Murphy is an underrated GOAT for sure.

So glad Dick Gregory made it on here. He was pushing while the actual civil rights movement was happening. If you havent heard his earliest recordings you have to check them out!!!

Please thumbs down if you are sick of black talk. This didn't have a single white comedian. Please lord bring back the UNITED PART of the USA. The left calls for unity but push this 🐎 💩 on tv everyday.

Amazing group of multitalented comedians! Praying for Sinbad to make a full recovery. The late Dick Gregory was a comedic prophet! Richard Pryor was a masterpiece/masterclass of a phenomenal comedian and multitalented comedic actor! Robin Harris was absolutely funny! The institution that financially assaults everyone by way of taxation without representation every april 15th; should have been charged with "Manslaughter" for causing Redd Foxx's death!

Delirious is a Great comedy
