Description
(1982 Grammy Winner for Best Comedy Recording) Filmed at the Hollywood Palladium not long after Pryor set himself on fire while smoking crack and nearly died, this 1982 set was an unparalleled night of comic genius.

"His gift is to be funny and painfully self-analytical at the same time. Like Bill Cosby, he gets a lot of his material out of memories of growing up black in America. But he sees deeper than Cosby, and his vignettes capture small truths and build them into an attitude. In the brilliant middle sections … he uses just his own voice and body to create little one-act plays, such as the one where he recalls working in a Mafia-owned nightclub in Ohio. In that one, his Italian-American-gangster accent is perfectly heard; in another skit, about the animals in Africa, he turns into a gifted physical comedian…. The last 20 minutes is one of the most remarkable marriages of comedy and truth I have ever seen…. [It was] like a gift, as if Pryor had come back from the dead to perform in his own one-man memory of himself."—Roger Ebert
