"Richard Pryor: Live on the Sunset Strip"

Who's Afraid of Richard Pryor's Sneakers? continues at Trailers from Hell with screenwriter Larry Karaszewski introducing "Richard Pryor Live on the Sunset Strip," Pryor's now classic "concert" film wherein he prowls the stage of the Hollywood Paladium for 82 remarkable minutes, gleefully riffing on the roller-coaster turns of his tumultuous personal life (including his cocaine addiction and self-immolation) while effortlessly embodying a multitude of characters, in particular his guilt-tripping friend Jim Brown and the grizzeled sidewalk philosopher, “Mudbone”. Sidesplitting and enormously touching, Pryor and his foulmouthed poetry were embraced by audiences across the board.
