“Richard Pryor – Live on the Sunset Strip” (1982)
There is nothing like a great comedy to change your life from dull to dynamic. When I think of a great comedian, Richard Pryor is the first person who comes to mind. Richard Pryor was not only a great comedian, he was also a trailblazer who paved the way for comedians such as Chris Tucker, Martin Lawrence, Chris Rock, etc.
If you check out this stand-up routine you will see why Richard Pryor was a comedic genius. The way he discusses his adolescence and sex makes you literally scream with laughter. If you haven’t seen this show, make sure you check it out. You will not regret it.
“The Richard Pryor Show”
Who knew that Richard Pryor had a television sketch show? This comedy sketch program aired in 1977 and was billed as cutting edge for its time. The jokes and sketches never get old and I promise you, you will be in stitches laughing at Richard Pryor and his antics. Check out the first few shows of this series, which also includes a Roast segment and outtakes. You will turn a boring Friday night into a blast.
“Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead”
This documentary changed my life after watching the lifelong journey of Joe Cross on this thought-provoking documentary on Netflix. When I initially heard about the documentary, I didn’t think that it would be for me. After watching it, my family went on a month-long juice cleanse that literally changed our lives.
I heard about this documentary through conversations with friends and coworkers and couldn’t wait to watch it. I finally caught the documentary on Netflix, four years after it was released. The best thing about Netflix is you can enjoy movies and documentaries that played in the movies decades prior.
