Movie InfoThis fourth entry in Richard Pryor's comedy-concert film series would probably have played better as a 48-minute video. Instead, it was released as an 83-minute feature, requiring way too much padding (mostly in the form of the hecklers who bedevil Pryor all through his performance).

Critic Reviews for Richard Pryor - Here and Now
A disappointment, especially since it's the last full-tilt concert film of the funniest man in history.
Lidando com uma platéia irritantemente participativa, Pryor demonstra seu domínio de palco e, através de monólogos reveladores, faz importantes comentários sociais repletos de humor. Destaque para o monólogo do junkie.
Some of Pryor's greatest late-heyday stand-up.
Audience Reviews for Richard Pryor - Here and Now
I love Richard Pryor and I love his other famous stand up routines but for me, the crowd and the heckling really spoiled Here and Now for me. There weren't even any good heckles, people just shouted out really stupid things and it was hard to ignore. I'm not sure being handed a Crab for no reason is a heckle but come on, let the man do his thing. I wonder how Pryor thought it went on reflection, anyone know?
Not as good as either of his previous comedy specials, but there is no such thing as bad Richard Pryor stand-up.More
