This year RAMS is privileged to honor and celebrate the life of the world’s most iconic and influential comedian, Richard Pryor. This is an additional award, recently added for public figures that have created awareness and outreach to educate people of this … As Richard Pryor said, “This MS shit.” “Richard’s genius wasn’t just making people laugh, he used his comedy as a way to communicate the truth,” explains Pryor’s wife Jennifer Lee Pryor. “More than anyone, Richard could appreciate RAMS’ mission to not remain silent. RAMS uses every means possible to enlighten, inform and educate the public about MS. Telling the truth is their genius too.”
