"My Dad has seen Richard Pryor roll out back in the day, and another relative has told me tales of what it was like to see Lenny Bruce both before anyone knew he was as well as Bruce at his prime. I have always been so jealous of them for that. But now, because of what I saw of Coppin's uber-pro performance in Hollywood, I can brag at them as they have at me!"
