This is the first time that a non-musical artist has been inducted.
They made us laugh for years, and now, three notable comedians are on their way to the Apollo Theater’s walk of fame.
Black America Web reports that on October 1, Richard Pryor, Moms Mabley and Redd Foxx are all to be inducted into the historic walk of fame which, until now, had been reserved for musical artists.
Their induction marks the kick-off of the Apollo’s new comedy series, the Apollo Comedy Club.
