The guy is a genius and the funniest man in the world!
14 October 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Now I can see where Eddie Murphy got his material from. Richard Pryor most been the best stand up performer in the world. He talks about everything sex, drugs , animals and many more.

In my opinion we never gonna see anything like this again because Pryor delivered the funniest and most high class comedy ever. To me hes the greatest and truly a Legend so go out and buy this DVD and enjoy 1 hour and half stand up that has it all.

PS : If you can, watch the over stand up performance :

Here and now and Live at the sunset strip!

Catch this Legend in action while you still can NO one comes close I guarantee you!
