Top Critic Reviews


- Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Fresh: Pryor hits the comedy running and doesnt let up until hes exhausted the audience with so much gut-wrenching laughter that you won't know whether to stand up or lie down.

- Cole Smithey,, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Fresh: There will always only ever be one Richard Pryor, and his profoundly inspired performance shows exactly why.
