Pryor had done other concert films ... but this is far and away his finest -- Pryor firing on all cylinders.

April 9, 2007 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

A evolução de Pryor nos oito anos que separam esta performance de seu primeiro e desastroso show é espantosa: ele não apenas domina o material de maneira inquestionável como ainda exerce um fascínio absoluto sobre a platéia.

Brilliant, profane, gutsy, and funny. Prime Pryor.

May 4, 2006 | Rating: 5/5

I don't think I've ever laughed so hard at a stand-up act, and I don't think I've ever learned so much about comedic influences in one sitting.

Anybody who thinks Eddie Murphy is funny should watch this and discover where he stole his act.

Audience Reviews for Richard Pryor---Live in Concert


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.

Classic. This film is just one example of why Pryor was a fucking genius and one of the funniset and best comedians of all time.
