"If you asked me to name the funniest comedian of all time - was it Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harpo Marx? I'd immediately say Richard Pryor.... I loved him, he was amazing." - Mel Brooks

 

With seven CDs and two DVDs that deliver over 12 hours of prime Pryor hilarity - both familiar and rare - spanning from 1966 to 1992, this essential collection features the best recordings from his early years as a still-developing stand-up, his '70s-early '80s glory years as a profane- but-profound comic icon, and one of his final onstage performances in 1992. The deluxe 60-page book contains rare photos, multiple essays, exclusive celebrity tributes, a discography, a filmography, and a personal note penned by Richard's widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor. This is the most comprehensive collection ever devoted to the greatest comedian who ever lived.
