Richard Claxton Gregory (October 12, 1932– August 19, 2017) was an American comedian and conspiracy theorist, who also kept busy as a civil rights and vegetarian activist; the latter later on in life. He spent the last decade of his life speaking regularly on many outlets about numerous conspiracy theories he believes in and has knowledge of knowing personal inside information. His writing was of best selling and spoke on social issues and current events with all the opinions of one whom lived first handed through events that most of the generation wasn’t alive to recall. Like most of the 60’s and Jim Crowe to refresh or update anyone whom inquired about. This is when Gregory started coming popular amongst the African American communities of the south. Started to pioneer his own lane in stand-up comedy with his newly “no-holds-barred” sets, in which he poked fun at the bigotry and racism so abundant in America. In 1961 he started becoming a staple in the comedy clubs, even appearing on television, and officially releasing comedy record albums.
