Richard Pryor Live in Concert is a rare opportunity to see a brilliant comic at the peak of his form. It's Pryor's one-man show with all his infamous routines riotously intact. If you've laughed at Stir Crazy, now you will discover how funny he can really be, as himself. It is both an intensely personal and extremely funny performance which showcases Pryor's physical agility, his abilities as a mimic, and draws upon his outrageous personal experiences. He tackles taboo subjects with hilarious accuracy and keenly focused humour. His use of profanity is bold, but never out of context.
A huge box-office success in the US, this film captures a breathtaking performance and is an affirmation of the extraordinary talent of Richard Pryor.
