Richard Pryor—great comedian, or greatest comedian ever? If you don't have an opinion on that controversial question, perhaps it's time for you to visit YouTube and learn some things about life, race relations, winos, and white people. (Just search "Richard Pryor" and spend the day.) The rest of us will perhaps be excited by this exclusive news: Shout Factory will release a huge new Pryor box set, No Pryor Restraint: Life In Concert, on June 11. The set includes seven CDs and two DVDs, including two hours of previously unreleased material—in addition to established classics like Bicentennial Nigger and Live On The Sunset Strip. Below, please find a live bit that was new to me, and I've heard damn near everything the man recorded. But be warned, it is filthy, and involves bestiality. The box is available to pre-order here.
