Richard Pryor: Live on the Sunset Strip


“‘I don’t want them hip white people coming up to me and calling me no nigger or telling me no nigger jokes.’ And the audience laughs, sort of. The scene is 35+ years old from “Richard Pryor Live On The Sunset Strip.”

What could I add? Nothing. So this riso-printed book contains just this one sequence from the film when Pryor drops his bluster and takes the audience back with him to Africa where he recently visited and had a revelation. On screen it unfolds in a few short, breath-stealing minutes. Here, the text is laid-out verbatim in gold ink on matte black pages.
