Steve Harvey is giving insight into who his “Mount Rushmore of Comedians” is. During a recent episode of A&E’s Right To Offend: The Black Comedy Revolution, Harvey easily replaced the former presidents on the monument with Kevin Hart, Dave Chapelle, and Chris Rock. He also paid homage to the late Richard Pryor and the legendary Eddie Murphy. “Richard Pryor is a stand-alone dude. You know, if there was a Mount Rushmore, he don’t even get on the mountain,” Harvey said. He continued, “He’s a whole peak by hisself; he’s Mount Hood. Now, you can come up with your Mount Rushmore of Comedy, and you can put some people up there you want, but not Pryor. Pryor is a standalone entity.” Harvey went on to speak about Eddie Murphy as well and said, “Eddie Murphy is a peak by himself. Nothing we can do with them boys. They not included; that ain’t gonna happen.” When it comes to his choices Harvey said, “When you put stand-ups in a rock, it’s Dave Chapelle in that rock, it’s Chris Rock in that rock, it’s Kevin Hart in that rock, and the Kings of Comedy is a collective group in that rock.”Harvey added, “Them damn Kings of Comedy, man, Kevin Hart, Chris Rock, and Dave Chapelle is it. And feel how you wanna feel, and if you feel any different, it’s 'cause you ain’t been doing this long as me, and your a** don’t know what I know. Trust and believe, that’s a bad-a** Mount Rushmore.”Thoughts on this?
