Trivia

According to the film's press kit, alone on stage with a microphone in hand, stand-up comedian Richard Pryor dived head-first into his performance, creating his own special intimacy with the audience, as if it were a group of thirty friends rather than a capacity crowd of 3,000 devoted fans.

Pryor uses humor to tell it like it is
13 April 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Richard Pryor has met with a few pot holes in life's bumpy road.He has done countless things that he never should have,and he is the first to admit this.He uses his own unique comic style to tell us the gritty details of his life and to give us the message to not travel the road that he has traveled.You see,Richard Pryor not only wants to entertain us,he cares enough about us to tell us how stupid we would end up looking if we did the things that he has done.He is hilariously funny,and he is caring,and that makes him all right with me.I would urge all Pryor fans to have it in their collection.He was definitely at his peak here. Thumbs up.
