Richard Pryor: Live in Concert was the second of Richard Pryor's filmed concert performances, but the first to be released theatrically ( Live & Smokin' was filmed in 1971, but not released until 1985 on VHS). It was produced and distributed independently and is often hailed as one of the seminal and most influential recorded stand-up performances of the modern era.
"Probably the greatest of all recorded-performance films. Pryor had characters and voices bursting out of him .... Watching this mysteriously original physical comedian you can't account for his gift and everything he does seems to be for the first time." Pauline Kael, from her review of "Richard Pryor Live in Concert". An audio version was released in 1978 titled Live in Concert. The film and its copyright are owned by Gary Biller.
