9. Richard Pryor (Metaphorically) Fires His Entire Staff
Roast: The Richard Pryor Show (1977)
Complex says: As Omar from The Wire says: “You come at the king you best not miss.” In 1977 Richard Pryor had his own short-lived variety show called The Richard Pryor Show. The show was controversial and only lasted four episodes. At the conclusion of the show's run, the cast got together to roast Pryor. When they were done, it was Pryor's turn, and he went to the front and gave each cast member—including Paul Mooney and Robin Williams—a comedic wedgie.
