Richard Pryor: Live in Concert
release year:1979 genre:comedy concert viewing setting:home DVD, 11/7/98 what I expected:dated rude comedy material what I got:some good laughs
synopsis:This is a live 1979 comedy routine by Richard Pryor.
impressions:Well, after watching this I know where Eddie Murphy got much of his style from. Richard Pryor was telling the same sort of jokes, and now I know that he was telling them first. This was decent, it had a few parts that were really funny, but other parts were kinda lame. NOTE: the picture quality of this DVD was inferior, maybe a bad pressing.
acting:N/A, really. He does good white people voices, and good sound effects. He keeps the dialogue moving, too - fast thinker on his feet.
final word:Worth seeing, but probably only once.
