Did You Know?
It is revealed in Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic
(2013) that Pryor completely messed up his performance during the first filming of the show. Pryor lost his train of thought and forgot most of his material. He apologized to the audience and ended the show early leaving the audience angry. Pryor pulled himself together and gave a much better performance the next night. Most of the footage in the film is from the second performance. See more
