Richard Pryor elicits jealousy and a comic crush from everyone in the business. I’ve mentioned the comic genius a number of times on this blog. He’s featured in the best bromances and in the Comedians I Love. And, today’s post won’t be my last. While my style is 180 degrees from the late Mr. Pryor’s, I’m a huge fan of his work.
 
Richard Pryor Live at the Sunset Strip
 
Through February 20th, you can geek out on his work at BAM Cinematek. See his films in a double feature. On Tuesday, two of his best comedic performances — Stir Crazy and Silver Streak — are on a double bill. That’s a double feature worth trekking to Brooklyn for. Or, if you want to catch some of his more dramatic work, see Lady Sings the Blues tonight. Whatever you do, don’t miss this homage to one of the kings of comedy.
 
And, I’m not the only one crowing about it. The New York Times hailed it “a savvy film retrospective” while The New Yorker praised him, “Pryor wrenched his humor from a deep vein of emotion that he was also able to mine as an actor.”
