Director Joe Layton's approach to filming star Richard Pryor in action went far beyond positioning a static camera to record the activities onstage. In order to cope with Pryor's rapid-fire delivery, Layton had two satellite stages constructed off of the main stage at the Palladium. Layton said: "This gave Richard considerable mobility, which is the hallmark of his act. I can't think of another performer as animated and unpredictable as Richard. He works to make a joke pay off, and he'll do it with extraordinary body nuances and facial takes".
Thank *God* we got penitentiaries! I asked a dude - I said, "Why did you kill everybody in the house?" The guy said, "They was home!"
