Richard Pryor - Live and Smokin'


USA 1971, 46 minutes
Rating: [R18]
Genres: Comedy / Standup Comedy

Topics: African-American.


Aroview: Seminal Richard Pryor set filmed live and uncensored at New York's Improvisation club in 1971. All the comedic hallmarks are evident even at this premature point in Pryor's career as he practices an incendiary form of stand-up now imitated by the likes of Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle. Includes the now legendary “Wino Preacher” and “Willie the Junkie” sequences.
