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 »

Quite Simply the Greatest Stand-Up Routine Ever Recorded
21 July 2004 | by (Leeds, UK) – See all my reviews

I can't express how dazzlingly brilliant this routine is. The jokes, the faces, the mime, the banter, ad-libs - everything amazes. This is the 'Citizen Kane' of routines and many comedians since have taken inspiration from it including Eddie Murphy (esp.) Chris Rock and Eddie Izzard.

Yes it is profane, but if you are stupid enough to watch a Pryor stand- up without being prepared for extreme 'vulgarity' then frankly you deserve to be offended. The language, although extreme isn't that shocking (even the now dreaded 'N' word) because it is all part of Pryor's 'jive' and would be poorer without it.

Watch this and see a master at the top of his game.
