PR No Pryor Restraint: Life In Concert CD/DVD Box Set Out Jun 11

No Pryor Restra

Though he can be described as a comedian, an actor, a writer and a social activist, Richard Pryor was, first and foremost, an artist whose groundbreaking brand of uncompromising humor enriched the lives of millions. With 7 CDs and 2 DVDs that deliver over 12 hours of prime Pryor hilarity spanning 1966-1992--including nearly two hours of previously unreleased stand-up performances and rare recordings from the Pryor archives--this essential collection features the best recordings from his early years as a still-developing stand-up, his '70s and '80s glory years as a profane-but-profound comic icon and one of his final onstage performances in 1992.
