Comedy Central has begun production on an hour-long tribute to Richard Pryor.

The network said Richard Pryor: I Ain't Dead Yet, &*%$ will air Sunday, Nov. 30 at 10 p.m.

Pryor will host his own special, and it will feature clips of in-concert performances, recordings and diary excerpts.

Guests scheduled to appear include Dave Chappelle, Margaret Cho, Mos Def, Jamie Foxx, Whoopi Goldberg, Eddie Griffin, Steve Harvey, D.L. Hughley, George Lopez, Jennifer Lee Pryor, Jon Stewart, Wanda Sykes and George Wallace.

"It's not a BS-didn't-he-used-to-be-great tribute -- it's a funny God-damn show," Pryor said in a release. "I may have MS [multiple sclerosis], but I ain't dead yet, muthaf___a!"
