Movie Info

This 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

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

At the end of the movie we have been wrung out with laughter -- and with a few other things, too, because Pryor is more than a comedian in this film: He's a social commentator, and a man talking honestly about himself.

A disappointment, especially since it's the last full-tilt concert film of the funniest man in history.

May 11, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

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

Not as good as either of his previous comedy specials, but there is no such thing as bad Richard Pryor stand-up.
