A masterpiece. Socially relevant, yet also intensely personal, and never less than hilarious.

He's funny. Not as good as the 1979 concert but still good.

Pryor at his absolute best in my opinion. I remember seeing on HBO as wee lad. I even recorded it with my first cassette (audio) recorder next to the speaker on the TV. Watched and listened to it over and over until I memorized the the show. To this day I can recite nearly the entire show with most of his infections and enunciation. Richard Pryor was a comic genius and his impact not only on the world of comedy but the entertainment industry in general will live on for all time. Thanks Richard!

One of the most honest genuine funniest comedians of all.

Shame he's not still alive & kicking as he would have had a field day taking the piss out of what's going on today.

Richard Pryor is one of the most funniest comedians of all times. With a great control in his material, Pryor also is charismatic with the audience, without leave his terrific black humor. Fresh.

In Live in Concert Richard Pryor is in top form. This maybe be the funniest stand up routine that I have ever seen (& I have seen it a few times) that constantly had me smiling or laughing. This is a prime example why I love Richard Pryor & why he was one of the masters of stand up. Im jealous of those who were able to see him live. Thank good there was concert films of his work. Sure his albums were great but to get the full effect you actually need to see him w/. His physical delivery is fantastic & makes his material even better. If you're offended by it I only have two words for you - FUCK YOU. Pryor is a legend.

Not the funniest filmed stand up routine of all time like some bill it as, but still pretty damn good.

As others have said, this is the best stand-up performance ever recorded. It sounds like an exaggeration, but it's not. Pryor is a comedic genius, and you can see his influence in every comedian since. He sets the standard. His facial expressions, acting abilities, delivery, etc., are all top-notch, and he can make even mundane topics such as walking through the woods pee-your-pants hilarious (in fact, he spends a long time talking about the woods, which is a bit puzzling, but hey, it's funny). He also covers completely unrelated topics such as dogs, drugs, family life, boxing, and sex... all the while being hysterically funny. The guy is amazing, and I recommend this to anyone who enjoys stand-up comedy.
