Richard Pryor: I'd always try to go to sleep to get out of an ass whupping. You know, pass up supper and everything, ease in the covers, think I got it made. She'd wake your ass up. One in the morning...
Richard Pryor: [making motions as if he was beating someone] Get your ass, out of that bed. I told you, put your... don't you run from me! Don't you ever run from me! As long as you black, don't you run from me!

A wonderful comic!
25 August 2002 | by Skeletors_HoodSee all my reviews

Richard Pryor is without a doubt one of the best stand-up performers to ever grab a mike, because he breaks the performance wall, and just has a conversation with the audience, which is rare for a comic to do. He talks to the audience, and involves them in the show, and the things he talks about on stage are not really jokes, but his retelling of certain life events that he has had, and you get the feeling that you would be hearing the same thing if you were just sitting alone with him in a room, and that is what makes his comedy so good, that conversational quality. No other comic that I can think of has done that with such a level of success that Pryor did...he was a real natural.

As far as profanity goes, Pryor doesn't use it to shock, he just talks that way naturally, and so the cursing doesn't stick out that much. Still, if you're easily offended by such language, then avoid it, but you are only robbing yourself of seeing a legend working his magic.
