His comedy timing was amazing, and his honesty, although sometimes almost painful to hear, shines through his material, which is always funny, consistently in fact!
I know a lot of people prefer his "live in concert" dvd, which is also great, but I think "here and now" is his finest hour, (other than his live cds, go check out the boxset of his albums, a really great collection of Pryor at his hilarious best), I can't recommend it highly enough.
If you want to see a 100% comedy genius at work, buy this, sit back and be prepared to laugh, because, unless your funny bone is broken, you surely will!
live at the sunset strip Is one of the funniest things you ever likely to see. Seriously everyone should own this DVD. The editing come been better but that really doesn't concern me in the slightest. Its like saying Roberts Johnson music is badly recorded I cant listen to it. I own many Richard Pyror DVDs Im so glad I added this too my collection. Really great
The material is great and I laughed a lot, the vomiting & toilet stuff was very funny. The drug material was better on this than the Sunset gig and I liked his performance as the junkie toward the end, it was like a piece of theatre rather than comedy but it was very powerful.
I also liked his compassion towards the poor crab - it showed what a great human being Richard Pryor was.
Sunset Strip is a different story. Pryor seems very nervous. It takes quite a while for him to get going. The only material I liked was his tales of the inmates in an Arizona prison, the wild animals in Africa and some of the drug stuff at the end but all of it doesn't work for me. I blame nerves on this gig, he was not relaxed.
There seems to be some awful post production editing with this film which isn't done on Here & Now.
I am sure laughter has been added in at some points.
Sometimes Pryor makes some non funny statement about something and you hear audience laughter.
The editing overall is cr*p.
Overall, this is worth getting for the first dvd I review, the Sunset Strip one is very disappointing.
Also worth considering is the 1971 dvd Live and Smokin which is not top notch but I think better than Sunset.
Richard Pryor was a great guy and never became a celebrity a**h*le, he had a lovely warm smile and he smiled with his eyes.
It's a pity there aren't hundreds of his gigs on dvd !!
