Recorded in April 1971 at the famed Improv in New York City, this stand-up performance captures the early comedy stylings and no-holds-barred wit of funnyman Richard Pryor.
This is negligible as film but transfixing as stand-up humanity, as Pryor moves awkwardly but inexorably from fart and dick jokes (funny ones) into an eventual extended welter of character sketches with a singularly gangling grace. 1971.
