    see all cast/crew...

Running Time: 98 min.

One of the funniest TV programs ever, The Richard Pryor Show features the outrageous comedian at his peak. Airing in 1977, this cutting-edge sketch comedy program dared to challenge censors' restrictions like no other TV series before it. Completing just four shows, Pryor personally cancelled the series after feuds with the censors. His determination to remain true to his vision resulted in a high-quality program that was far ahead of its time.

Breaking Ground Again by villain July 25, 2004 - 3:40 PM PDT

As any fan of stand up comedy already knows, Richard Pryor (along with Rudy Ray Moore) was a ground breaker. He again broke ground with this short-lived, yet very funny TV series. The skits have either an underlying, or quite overt, social-political theme. There's certainly a '70s Black-consciousness "feel" to the show which I thought was great. It did make me wonder how this series ever got the green light to begin with. Hell, this show would have trouble staying on air today without an outcry of controversy. I can't wait to get the other volumes of this show.
