Summary
"I Am Richard Pryor tells the story of the legendary performer and iconic social satirist, who transcended race and social barriers by delivering his honest irreverent and biting humor to America's stages and living rooms until his death at 65. Featuring an iconic comedic cast, historians, activists and artists including: Mike Epps, Tiffany Haddish, Lily Tomlin, Michael Schultz, Sandra Bernhard, Howie Manel and Jennifer Lee Pryor, who during a moving and poignant moment in the documentary, uniquely honors the life of her husband. The film dives deeply into the psyche of a comedic genius whose mother was a prostitute, father a pimp, and grandmother a madam. Pryor dispensed a penetrating comedic view of African American life -- essentially comedy without jokes -- that struck a chord with audiences of every ethnic, social and economic disposition."--Container
