Richard Pryor: Live in Concert

The film that introduced British audiences to Richard Pryor's real forte – acidic and self-damning humour – after his appearance in a relatively straight role in ‘Blue Collar’, and his ‘clean’ parts in ‘California Suite’ and’ The Wiz’.

This record of one of his gigs in 1978 at Long Beach, California, may be technically imcompetent, but it just can't mar his vulgar and ebullient attacks on everything from Richard Pryor to police brutality, from God to sexual chauvinism. Politics, humour and sex in a great combination.
