Editorial Reviews


"Jason Bailey's Richard Pryor is a sharp-eyed, quick-witted portrait of the comedian. Focused on telling moments when Pryor seemed to rewrite the rulebook of American culture, it refreshes our sense of what made Pryor so hilarious, so spell-binding, and so psychologically complex." -Scott Saul, author of Becoming Richard Pryor "Powerful and compassionate. Jason Bailey understands not just Pryor's historical significance, but the evolution of his art." -Matt Zoller Seitz, author of The Wes Anderson Collection "Ingeniously organizing Richard Pryor's groundbreaking career and epic life by theme, Jason Bailey gives movies and records equal weight to relative ephemera like interviews and talk show appearances, resulting in a fascinating analysis of the push-pull between an often seemingly reckless persona and the confession and craft behind Pryor's art." -Karina Longworth, host of You Must Remember This
