Trivia:
First, live, stand up concert to be filmed, and at the time, especially with Pryor's language and topics, was considered to be a real risk. According to website 'Wikipedia', the movie was the "first full-length, feature movie consisting of only stand-up comedy, often hailed as one of the seminal and most influential recorded stand-up performances of the modern era".See more »

The greatest comedian of all time, 10 April 2007
Author: Sondis Green from United States

I am 34 year old and i was 6 years old when this concert was filmed in 1979,i saw it as a little boy and countless times until this day,i am so lucky to have been born in Richards Generation to have had the opportunity to witness this man come on stage with all of his imperfections and personal problems and share it with me and the rest of the world in a way where it makes us laugh.

Thinking about the loss of Richard Pryor makes me want to cry because i feel like he was someone i knew personally,thats the effect Richard Pryor had on everyone that watched him pro-form on stage,he broke the color line,even thought he is clearly a African American man,Richard Pryor made people of other races so comfortable listening to jokes revolving around race and social status.

I know there are other comedians that are great in their own right but the truth be told,Richard Pryor is and will always be regarded as the Best comedian that ever lived and this concert is the performance that proves that very fact.

RIP Richard,thank you for the laughs and joy and now the sadness you brought us all,we will never ever forget you....
