Richard Pryor: Live in Concert

Richard Pryor is a comic genius at his prime in this 1979 live performance filmed in Long Beach. Live! is considered by many critics to be Pryor's funniest and freshest outing, as well as one of the best stand-up films of all time.

Pryor's timeless tales of shooting his car, being attacked by his own heart, enduring his grandmother's disciplinary measures, and trying to convince his children he's not kidding when he nearly drowns have all withstood the test of time and remain as hilarious as ever.

The entire routine is brought to life through interpretive voices, skilled physical comedy and unique anecdotes. Pryor is uninhibited and raunchy while honest and insightful - proving his value as one of the most important standup comics of our time.
