Heh. Talk of Pryor below got me trolling through some of my favorite clips. Here's Pryor doing Obama before Obama. What I love about this clip is the pacing--the longer he talks the "blacker" he gets. It's like that with a lot of black professionals. In the office they've got the second "white" voice going, and then you get a few drinks in them and MLK Boulevard comes out. But we've discussed this before. And seen this clip before. Still, was cool to re-watch. Dig all the cameos in here also--I think that's Marsha Warfield. Definitely Tim Reid a little later.
