  • After hosting a highly successful special on NBC in 1977, Richard Pryor was offered a ten-week contract by the network to present his own show. However, bizarre scheduling problems and Pryor's paranoia concerning his abilities meant that it only ran to four shows. Although the ratings didn't manage to live up to expectations, the shows have subsequently undergone something of a critical rehabilitation, and are now regarded to be amongst Pryor's best work. Combining a mixture of political satire and his inimitable rapier wit, Pryor worked with a variety of special guests on the shows to produce some classic comedic subject matter which still resonates to this day. Guests include John Belushi, Maya Angelou, Robin Williams, Sandra Bernhard, and many others.
