Richard Pryor: Live On The Sunset Strip
Starring: Richard Pryor
Director: Joe Layton
If Richard Pryor were accused of being the funniest man in America, this film of his incredible stage act
would be exhibit A. It is proof beyond the shadow of a doubt! Shot live at the Hollywood Palladium;
the film captures all the excitement, lunacy and electric force of a Richard Pryor performance.
And though he's the only star of this hilarious show, he's never alone on stage. With him is his
amazing array of characterizations as he talks about his trip to Africa in search of his "roots", his
early days playing one night gigs in Mafia owned clubs and strip joints, and numerous other outrageous topics.
Finally, he talks about "Pryor on Fire" - a recounting of the accident which nearly took his life;
and episode he relates with wit and a touch of poignancy. You'll laugh like you've never laughed before!
Price: $14.99 [VHS] $24.99 [DVD]
