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.

A good tribute to a great comedian.
28 June 2001 | by UltimateTrekkerSee all my reviews

So many greats came out to pay tribute to Richard Pryor. The saddest part of the whole thing is that they kept cutting to Richard who simply waved. I think he was waving the whole time, not really understanding what all those people were there for.

Robin Williams of course made the stand out, crazy man speech, but all gave us a laugh, and reminded us that this man really broke the rules and gave us some great times.
