Format: DVD
I don't have the DVD, but I have the original televised concert taped. It was unbelievable. I absolutely peed myself laughing. He was a fantasitc storyteller. The stories about being disciplined by his dad and grandma were hilarious. When he talked about his stepmothers funeral, he reminded us that awful things in life still have the power to make you laugh. But the absolute best bit was the sex at the end. There will never be anyone bigger or better than Richard Pryor. RIP

I have seen many stand up comedians but by far pryor is the best and out of all i think this is his finest performance. and from then on black comedians like eddie murphy jamie foxx chris rock and so on have tried to perform like him.He brings his life and past on stage for all to see and makes it funny.In my eyes if u wanna laugh BUY this dvd u wont be dissapointed.

I first saw this on TV sometime late at night on channel 4, as a tribute to his memory, and I'm surprised i didn't wake everyone up laughing!
No-one can argue that Richard Pryor isn't funny if they haven't seen this first. Put plainly, Richard Pryor is both amusing(to say the least)and enthralling in his mixed style of comedy and storytelling. The woods part is my favourite! Snake!
Look, I'm only 15 (yes, I know, I'm not old enough) but my friends don't really take me seriously when I say that the stuff you'll hear today, like Peter Kaye and Lee Evans, just don't compare to the comic genius of this man. All I can say is: Buy it. Watch it. Enjoy it.

Format: DVD
Although some of his films (Stir Crazy and Hear No Evil... in particular) hint at the comedic genius of Richard Pryor he is funniest in stand-up, and until the release of this DVD there was precious little available on Region 2 DVD.
Is it offensive? Well, I'm not offended by it, and while I can understand that some people might be, they're not the type of people who would impulsively purchase this DVD, so what the hell? And anyway, no-one (not even Bill Cosby if you believe Eddie Murphy) is going to stop Pryor saying what he wants to say of stage, and that's what makes this material so great. People who have been turned off by other comedians who take this approach need not fear Pryor, however. Whereas Bill Hicks, Sam Kinison and George Carlin might be too in-your-face for some, this show is every bit as thought-provoking as anything done by these three without ever provoking anger or outrage.
Most importantly, the material is funny. Very funny indeed. So funny that by the time you've watched it all you will probably be in pain. You can't remain in any way dignified when watching Pryor at work, so don't even try - just laugh until you drop.
Make no mistake, Pryor is at the very top of the Premier League of comedians and, at a time something as banal and mediocre as Peter Kaye is considered cutting edge stand-up, we need this stuff more than ever.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Billy Ray Cyrus on 20 Aug 2006
Format: DVD
While the past few decades have seen the emergence of many comedians who spit out swears and graphic subject matter with reckless abandon, precious few have taken offensive subject matter and turned it into something intelligent and entertaining at the same time. Denis Leary, Bill Hicks, and Dave Chappelle come to mind when I think of such a select group, but Richard Pryor may well have towered over them all. And 1979's Richard Pryor: Live in Concert may have been his definitive document.

This 90-minute standup DVD sees Pryor giving a manic, imaginative, occasionally profane performance that had the audience in the palm of his hand from beginning to end. Pryor was a master impersonator with a vast pantheon of characters and voices. Pryor didn't just talk about his subjects, he became them. He acted out every person (lady in the wood taking a pee - ha,ha), every story, and every idea to the fullest extent possible, constantly blurring the line between real and make-believe. Jokes about animals quickly gave way to spot-on imitations, whether of the inner thoughts of Dobermans/ Great Danes or of his pet monkey's illicit sexual activities (NEEP, NEEP- ha,ha..).

There are also plenty of brutally honest stories about Pryor's life with his father, ranging from his father's death in mid-coitus ("he came and went at the same time"), to the one time Pryor stood up to his old man ("It wasn't really a fight, but I did the best I could"), and their time hunting together ("I hated being the dog"). Pryor's honesty and insightfulness come out in plenty of other places too, from his troubles with the law "Cops dont shoot cars; They shoot Nig-cars" to his heart attack.

Richard pryor's performance is astonishing he has to be the greatest comedian in our era and definately needs to be acknowledged, if you are a stand up fan and want to see a true comedic genius at work and laugh till you cant laugh no more, buy this dvd or you'll die without ever seeing the greatest and funniest comedian ever to grace us!
