A look at the life of the late comedian, from his humble beginnings growing up in his grandmother's brothel to his status as arguably the greatest stand-up of all time. The Rev Jesse Jackson , Whoopi Goldberg and Eddie Izzard contribute. Presented by Lenny Henry. Strong language. A classic concert follows.
Director Bob Smeaton ; Producer Carlton Dixon
Foul-mouthed but hysterically astute stand-up from legendary comic Richard Pryor. in a special performance filmed before a live audience at the Terrace Theater in Long Beach, California, in 1979. Free-wheeling scatological observations draw on many aspects of his turbulent private life, from the punishments meted out by his strict father to his own well-publicised brushes with the law. Review page 51.

About this project
This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed
in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC
programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.
We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC
programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement
with the BBC.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
