One of the funniest TV programs ever, THE RICHARD PRYOR SHOW features the outrageous comedian at his peak. Airing in 1977, this cutting-edge sketch comedy program dared to challenge censors' restrictions like no other TV series before it. Completing just four shows, Pryor personally cancelled the series after feuds with the censors. His determination to remain true to his vision resulted in a high-quality program that was far ahead of its time. This set contains the last two aired episodes.
Ep. 3 (Original Air Date: September 27, 1977) Richard Pryor is a diner who uses his food as foreplay; a caveman who discovers fire; Mr. Fixit; and Little Richard. A woman describes a lesbian encounter.
Ep. 4 (Original Air Date: October 20, 1977) Richard Pryor is a Chinese chef, a wino, El Neggro, a ranch owner, a survivor of the Titanic and Santa Claus. The cast roasts him. Charlie Hill tells jokes.
