Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

One can't help but feel both elated and sad when listening to this colossal overview of Richard Pryor's recorded work. Multiple sclerosis has silenced the greatest humorist of his generation, and that's tragic for Pryor. But it's also a heartbreaking loss for comedy, for, as these discs amply illustrate, the man who exploded the parameters of stage comedy in the 1970s could have taken it in wild new directions. As it was, Pryor fleshed out Lenny Bruce's commitment to brutal honesty and with a keener acting ability. This nine-CD set includes the comic's seven Warner Bros. LPs, plus a disc of previously unissued material and a rare 25-minute interview from 1983. Listening to the likes of 1974's That Nigger's Crazy and 1978's Live in Concert, it's obvious that while the man shaped comedy for decades to come, very few of those who have followed in his footsteps have anything near the talent, fearlessness, wisdom or insight that Pryor possessed. Or the pain, for that matter. But as Pryor observed looking back at his peak years, "I was a drug-addicted, paranoid, frightened, lonely, sad, and frustrated comedian who had gotten too big for his britches". All those qualities come through loud and clear on these disks, but what he's left out is that, at the very same time, he was also very possibly the funniest man on the planet. --Steven Stolder

Format: Audio CD
This is an astounding compilation of the work of the greatest stand up comedian of all time. Even if you dont own any comedy CD/videos ( which few people seem to ) this should be the only one you need.
When you listen to Pryor you find that the 'laugh so hard your kidneys hurt' factor is so frequent that most if all Comedians fall by the wayside.
Pyror comedy is very raw and very explicit so it would not be a good idea as a present for your local devout moslem/jew/christian but if you're broadminded and want to laugh your ass off then this is what you need.
The collection does miss one quality CD of Pryors 'Who Me Im Not Him' but you'll want to get it anyway after you've heard this.

There are a lot of good comedians around, but none can compare withRichard Pryor. This has to be the best £30 I've ever spent. After hearingsome of his material I bought this, and can wholeheartedly say that he isthe best. I've seen and heard other comedians such as Billy Connelly andChris Rock, but none can come close to causing so many tears and so muchpain, through laughter, as this great man. This collection charts hisprogress from young beginner with presence and a flair for telling tales,particularly about himself, to absolute commander of the stage and hisaudience.
After listening to this, I can see why so many comedians rate him as thebest, and where they get their own inspiration from. He was a trulyfantastic comedian with an incredible gift for making people laugh, oftenat his own expense. Make sure you don't miss the chance to enjoy the rideand split your sides laughing in the process.

Some may think he is vulgar and crude...He is but he brings something original to comedy.Who else can sound racist,talk about his life and every day events but bring everyone closer.It's about time someone took the piss out of the whiteman.If only we had a man like this in belfast.

This collection od 9 discs, covers all Pryors recording made with Warner Brothers. Richard, is not afraid to poke fun at all aspects of human life - especially his own troubled life. He does so in such a manner as to make you cry with laughter and instill a need to listen again and again. If you don't think seriously about purchasing this comedy masterpiece collection yhen shame on you.

If there was a fire in my house I would save this. Well maybe not but I love my Richard Pryor box set so much. I would be amazed if you got this and regretted it for a second. You will laugh and laugh but be warned if you listen to it to much the n word might just slip out and as Richard said That is a devastating word.

This is a great collection. For all that it may leave some stuff out, at this price you're getting some of the finest and most historically significant comedy on the planet, and you're getting a LOT of it!
Only trouble is that it's a boxset, so inevitably the CDs are jammed into little cardboard-sleeve versions of the original album covers. Mine arrived already a little crushed. You may have to copy the albums to minidisc or something for regular listening, but who cares? They're GREAT.
I've put 4 stars just to signal the boxing problem, but really, the material deserves a 5/5. In fact we should invent a new scale. Funny stuff.
