    I was wondering what E! True Hollywood Story parody was more popular. People always seem to list these in their top 10 favs, so which do you like best? Which do you think is funnier?

    I do prefer Rick James myself, but Prince is still hilarious.

    The Prince one was so much better because of the imagery. Prince and his fancy crew plays them in frilly clothes and high heels and they stomp them. That's great! "and then he served us pancakes". yeah my favorite skits are as follows 1. Prince show 2. Black White Supremist 3. Rick James Show 4. Wayne Brady Show 5. The Nig-gars

    Slightly prefer Rick James, but if Prince had been as long then I'd go with that.

    Each has its own advantages. The Rick James sketch is longer and more memorable, but the Prince sketch is more in touch with Chappelle's Show humor and ridiculessness. What I wish, honestly, is that they made more of those sketches. But what I really want to see is more Samuel Jackson, It's my Beer! sigh, a guy can dream, can't he? I'm Rick James, B!tch!

    i'd have to say both of them are good or i'd b lying because i think the prince one had better quality but it wasnt long enough, while the rick james one had a little less quality but they made it the right length and kept it fresh throughout the show.

    I'd have to pick Prince. I found the skit where he and the revolution challenged Charlie Murphy to a basketball game. Then when he asked them for pancakes, a total slap in the face. He acts nice after wooping(not sure about spelling) their a****. Funny!

    I like how they are all equal in the poll. One more vote will break the tie.
