Trivia

Huey P. Newton was sitting in the audience. Richard Pryor announces this fact to the audience but Newton is not actually shown in the film. Director Jeff Margolis later explained that he had no cameras aimed at the audience, but would have had he known Pryor was going to introduce him. See more »

A wonderful comic!
25 August 2002 | by (Kansas City) – See all my reviews

Richard Pryor is without a doubt one of the best stand-up performers to ever grab a mike, because he breaks the performance wall, and just has a conversation with the audience, which is rare for a comic to do. He talks to the audience, and involves them in the show, and the things he talks about on stage are not really jokes, but his retelling of certain life events that he has had, and you get the feeling that you would be hearing the same thing if you were just sitting alone with him in a room, and that is what makes his comedy so good, that conversational quality. No other comic that I can think of has done that with such a level of success that Pryor did...he was a real natural.

As far as profanity goes, Pryor doesn't use it to shock, he just talks that way naturally, and so the cursing doesn't stick out that much. Still, if you're easily offended by such language, then avoid it, but you are only robbing yourself of seeing a legend working his magic.
