As good as it gets in stand up comedy!
14 March 2003 | by (Vista, CA) – See all my reviews

I have no idea what is wrong with the authors of the negative comments about this film, but clearly they have no sense of humor because this is one of the funniest stand up routines ever - period.

Richard Pryor has terrific material, perfect delivery and great comic timing

  • he is a comic genius. His self deprecating style is simply perfect and
extraordinarily funny.

I have seen this show several times on cable and I laugh often and out loud throughout every time. The opening 20 minutes have some of the funniest stuff I have ever heard particularly the bits about his relationships. And his description of Jim Brown trying to save him from crack addiction and the stories of his subsequent hospitilization for burn treatment are hilarious.

Highly recommended.
