...Bill Cosby said Pryor "drew the line between comedy and tragedy as thin as one could possibly paint it."

Audience Reviews for Richard Pryor Live on the Sunset Strip

Pryor occasionally drops philosophical during this concert performance in 1982, particularly when recounting his experiences in Africa. The highlight is definitely his ability to find humor in telling the story of how he incinerated himself when freebasing coke and paints a scary/funny picture of the devilish power of addiction.

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