With Richard Pryor

"Richard Pryor is one of our great originals. 'Richard Pryor Live on the Sunset Strip' is a rare experience of its kind, often hilarious but also frightening and, without asking for it, very moving."
—The New York Times

Roasted but unbowed, Pryor made his comeback with this film, prowling the stage for cameras recounting the incident in which he lit himself on fire while freebasing cocaine. Pryor unleashes a panoply of characters, including a talking pipe, Mafioso nightclub owners, Tupelo, Mississippi’s own Mudbone, and an entire African safari. His confessional monologue on heartbreak—in which he acts out a mute screaming match with a girlfriend—is among the observational highlights.
