Richard Pryor and George Carlin's Have a Conversation

The New York Times brought together Rain Pryor and Kelly Carlin, daughters of two of the greatest stand-ups ever, to have a conversation. They discuss trying to pursue the art their fathers were legends at and tell stories about living with these geniuses/maniacs. Rain Pryor: "I dyed my hair pink when I was 13, and my dad threatened to kick me out of the house. He was like, 'There will be no punk rockers here.' I was like, “You just snorted coke off a [prostitute’s chest]." That is pretty much perfect.
