Always wanted to be something. I never wanted to be white. I'm glad I'm black cause I'd hate to be white. Cause you all got to go to the moon.

After the credits, Pryor tells a joke that gets minimal laughter. Pryor then says "This ain't as funny as we thought it was gonna be. Motherfuck showbiz." See more »
While I like pretty much all of Richard Pryor's work, I suspect that "Richard Pryor: Live and Smokin'" probably embarrassed him a little bit. The humor is very dated, and Pryor looks somewhat uncomfortable here.
But even so, he certainly tells some funny stuff. I think that my favorite of his material here is the stuff about the Nixons (this was filmed in 1971); I get the feeling that Pryor's assertion about their sex life was an accurate one.
So anyway, hard-core Pryor fans won't want to miss this one, but others might not feel so enthused. OK in a pinch.
