RICHARD PRYOR: LIVE ON THE SUNSET STRIP (1982)

 

CLICK THE POSTER TO BUY THIS GOOD SHIT FROM AMAZON

 

Richard Pryor: When that fire hit your ass, it will sober your ass up *quick*! I saw something, I went, “Well, that’s a pretty blue. You know what? That looks like *fire*!” Fire is inspirational. They should use it in the Olympics, because I ran the 100 in 4.3.

 

This is the first stand-up show Pryor recorded after he set himself on fire while freebasing. Pryor is nervous, you can actually see him shaking a little as he is getting his legs back. It only takes a few minutes for him to get his stride, and it’s an uncomfortable few minutes, but once he does he’s the best in the world. Dig it, Honkey!

 

SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
