Richard Pryor takes the stage at the infamous Hollywood Palladium in one of his first performances after a well-publicized battle with drugs. Older, wiser and funnier than ever, the venerable comic tells outrageous jokes and a number of moving stories about his personal past -- including one about a life-changing trip to Africa. Pryor's trenchant social commentary touches on an array of subjects, from prison and mobsters to hospitals and cocaine.
