Hey, everyone. We’re going to do something a little different for Black History Month. Usually, we pick a different comedian every day. This month, we’re going to pick one comedian each week and take a deeper dive into their work. This week we’re celebrating Richard Pryor.
Honestly, we could do an entire month with just Richard Pryor and we’d still only be scratching the surface of the material available. It isn’t hyperbole to say that Pryor is one of the most influential comedians we’ve ever had grace the genre.
This clip is from the Dick Cavett show. In our not so humble opinion Dick Cavett is the best interviewer that has graced television, and this interview with Pryor shows this. Pryor opens up in a way you just don’t see in other interviews. Please take the time to enjoy this clip.
