Part live stand-up performance, part documentary, this film is one of comedian Richard Pryor's later stand-up performances. As foul-mouthed as ever, Pryor touches on most of the same topics as in his previous live shows.
I miss this Bill Cosby show. Everyone loved Lola Falana as she came out, danced, and introduced Mr. Cosby. My favorite line in the show actually came from Peter Sellers who was portrayed with Bill Cosby's character with the white suite, white Stetson hat cocked to the side, space shades (slit- eyed sunglasses) and platform shoes. Sellers was trying to be hip as Bill and instead of saying "right on", he put up his fist and he said "right arm". I still say it today. (Also, Bill's character had a certain 'cool' walk and then he would hesitate and wiggle his fingers, and then continue walking. There was also cool music in the background when he walked. Neat!) This show was very popular, but short lived and I always wondered did J.E.Hoover have anything to do with that. It's good that Mr. Cosby continued on until he was able to get a show that is popular and lasting.
This show was hilarious.
