| Pryor In His Prime
Richard Pryor performs his stand-up comedy act on the Sunset Strip.

This shows us the benefit of editing two performances together -- we get the best of two shows, making it better than seeing either one of them live.

Pryor has a vulgar routine on sex, and how showbiz has the perk of more women, including one night with an unnamed Playboy Bunny. We hear how Africa has black people that are actually black (suggesting that American black people are not completely black).

We get a great story on how he worked in a Mafia night club in Youngstown, Ohio with stripper Satin Doll, and how "crime don't pay". (Unfortunately, he again does not name names.)

Most striking of all, though, is his frank discussion of cocaine use. Not regretful, he tells it like it is (or was).
