I have always thought the routine Pryor did after his return from Africa was by far the funniest he ever did. It had more dignity or something. I loved the part about the lion: "yeah, come on over here, and bring the camera with you."
It always conjured up for me a mental vision of a big ol' scruffy lion hauling up a satisfied belch from the depths of his over-stuffed belly, and then, somehow, despite the lack of opposable thumbs, picking his teeth with a toothpick, and all the while wearing a very satisfied look.
He'll be missed! Probably as much as Sam Kinison!
