February 21, 2019



Most comedy fans would agree that the late Richard Pryor was one ot the greatest stand up comedians of all time.
From his childhood growing up in a brothel, to his rise to stardom as a stand up comedian and star of movies like "Stir Crazy", "Silver Streak" and "Brewster's Millions", to his well documented issues with drugs, his battle with MS and his eventual death from a heart attack...his story is a harrowing one, to say the least.
And now his life is examined in the new documentary, "I Am Richard Pryor"

We talked to his son Richard Pryor Jr about that, as well as about his own upcoming book "In A Pryor Life"
