Within the hazy, smoke-filled room stands a legend named Richard Pryor. His provocative style and one-of-a-kind delivery made him an inspiration and an icon of comedy. In 1971, Pryor's true comedic genius began to shine as he recorded one of his first live performances on stage at the New York Improvisation. It was there that he began his journey to becoming one of the most influential comics of all time. Noted as one of Pryor's most iconic and raw stand-up comedy routines, RICHARD PRYOR: LIVE & SMOKIN' features some of his most classic and beloved bits, including ""Wino Preacher" and ""Willie the Junkie," among others.
