Movie Info

Just recovered from his notorious free-basing accident, Richard Pryor made a notable return in the much-acclaimed Live on the Sunset Strip. His comments on that event, as well as his notorious comments on sex, politics and race, pepper the 82-minute concert film. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

There will always only ever be one Richard Pryor, and his profoundly inspired performance shows exactly why.

A honestidade com que Pryor expõe seus demônios pessoais para consumo do público, utilizando o microfone não apenas para fazer humor mas também para a auto-análise, garantem a permanência deste filme entre os clássicos do gênero.

Pryor hits the comedy running and doesn't let up until he's exhausted the audience with so much gut-wrenching laughter that you won't know whether to stand up or lie down.

Funny, vulgar but Pryor in his prime comedy concert

Sheer, breathtaking brilliance. A must-see.

Audience Reviews for Richard Pryor: Live on the Sunset Strip

Richard Pryor is a comedy legend, he could read the telephone directory and make it funny. Some people are born with funny bones, many might not have returned to comedy or work in general after the battle with drugs he'd been through before this tour but he comes back as brutally honest, open and hilarious as always. I prefer the concert he did 5 years previous to Sunset strip but only marginally.

One of the best stand-up comedy movies/specials I've ever seen. Richard Pryor was hilarious, may he R.I.P.
