Directed by Richard Pryor | 1986

With Richard Pryor, Debbie Allen, Art Evans, Fay Hauser, Barbara Williams

Pryor’s raw, black underclass answer to the filmed autobiography. Recovering from third-degree burns, superstar comic Jo Jo Dancer (Pryor) looks back on growing up in a small-town bordello, working his way through the lower echelons of the nightclub circuit (enacting Pryor’s great “Mafia club” routine), and finally getting swallowed up by the LA drug scene. Any resemblance to Pryor is, of course, purely coincidental.
