It is very important to note, though Richard Pryor's variety show did not stay long on air, it introduced the world to many up and coming comics!
This 43minute and some second presentation is a roast, by those new comics, many who are now household names, for Richard Pryor; their comedic way of saying thanks.
Paul Mooney as head writer hand picked the comics, who would become the sketch comedy crew, which made up Richard's show. It goes to show-- Conscious people are far. When they see talent, it doesn't matter what nationality or race they are, if they are talented-- we pull them aboard.
That's what Paul Mooney shows-- that you can tell the truth, be conscious, and be better than those who would close doors, on talented Black People, because they feared Black talent, because they were/are white supremacists.
Sit back and enjoy The Comedy Roast of Richard Pryor, hosted by Paul Mooney!
