jshudo44 : “Who is it, Carmine? Tell him I call him back. Tell him it’s a stick up!”

Bill Rabara : Absolutely brilliant. It's art. His cadence, use of props, timing, vocal manipulation all works together in this performance. This clip should be required viewing at performing arts and acting schools

LittleBigKid707b : This guy is SO on target with his mafia impression. I remember watching him in the 80s with my dad. A true legend and has inspired just about every stand up comic.

GerryBolger : Johnny Salami never had the makings of a varsity athlete.

Tom Keir : This man was one of the funniest Comedians who ever lived.

Kamal Hussain : I laughed more during this 4 minute routine, than I do watching entire stand up specials these days. Pryor is a legend and was definitely ahead of his time.

Joel Henry : "Rich do the gun again."

Reggie Kosoredjo : They kept him like a pet 😂😂😂😂😂

Motherlove Goodwin : This is a true Story, Satin Doll passed this year in Milwaukee Wisconsin a Great Artist RIP Doll.

cjtvtube : I never understood why people have to "compare" or say "this guy is better than that guy"... there all just "different". Its great to have diversity! I'll take Richard Pryor, Carlin, Eddie Murphy, Bill Burr, Seinfeld, Ricky Gervais, Mr. Bean ... and a load others and laugh! :) I enjoy them all... all have a different take and make me laugh.

R Bonilla : My father was Richard's assistant for 16 years.

Trey Indica : " do u want a ride home " that was soooo funny

ThatKidWitTheAfro : I knew itallian Mafia mf growing up who did concrete work. Did my moms driveway one summer n we're black in the hood. That whole summer I became the old mans favorite. The way he's describing them, old school Italians, is true to a T. I can testify.

George Jackson : Jesus, I miss this brother. We love you Rich!

Geoff Cliff : agree with everyone about his mafia impersonations. Absolute brilliant. The guy was a genius comedian.

lejdcool1 : sounds like he's lucky to be alive, I woulda been shitting myself

Jerry Johnson : Dec.1st: Happy birthday Comedian-Actor Richard Franklin Lennox Thomas Pryor (1940-2005) Emmy Award-writer on "Blazing Saddles," 5 Grammy Awards, 2 American Academy of Humor Awards, star: Hollywood Walk of Fame, first ever recipient: Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. Thank you and God bless. RIP Legend. Thanks for the upload, nazrul Jalil. Blessings

Fun Guy : I just watched Richard Pryor's son, Mason Jones stand-up Live at the Apollo. I can confirm Pryor Jr. did not inherit his father's funny bones.

NoJaYorK : U know what? I bet that shit was true and that Richard was really shittin his pants because altogether he makes it sound hilarious but I could feel the fear he had through this storytelling .. He really is the best comedian of all time ..

Ace The Great : The thing that impresses me is how accurate this is considering how long ago it was! This was years before Goodfellas. Legend!

Sean : who is it carmine? tell em ill call him back. tell him it was a stick up haha

Rst28 : The great thing about comedy- It makes you laugh. The beautiful thing about comedy - It transcends race. Everyone in the theatre that night was one color and the only thing under the roof that night was love and respect, for Rich, and each other, even if it was only for a short spell. Thank you for posting..

austin taylor : Did not expect to laugh this hard coming here lmao

NothingMaster : Pure genius! That show still stands as the absolute pinnacle of standup comedy. Pryor led a tortured existence; partly as the result of his painful childhood upbringing and the miserable hand that life dealt him, and partly by his own reckless design. But all of it---the good, the bad, and the ugly---was brilliantly channeled, by his genius, into his incomparable comedy. Standup comedy was his way of facing his inner demons, his innate defense mechanism against a painful history. Comedy was the only dimension where he found true comfort and security, albeit momentarily. He was so natural and successful, because none of it was really an act; he lived it all as they were.

My Name is JAFO : 4:19 - I'm laughing so hard, it's everything I can do not to piss my pants.

Bryan Bruner : I’ve watched old comics and sometimes their humor just doesn’t carry on. The jokes may have been funny in their time and that’s it. Pryor though....timeless.

Steve Davis : I been here about 15times in the past 24hrs this bit is hilarious.....😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

BlackJackMulligan : 0.24 The Lady " Satin Doll"he refers to is Toni Elling.

Malcom Boyd : Lmao "fry it up..they like fried food"

Ruben Delgadillo : Who else would've banged Satin Doll!

be honest : This is the funniest shit I've seen ever. RIP To the ORIGINAL KING OF COMEDY.

John Darcangelo : one of my favorite bits from one of my favorite stand ups.

Neil Mazzokko : I live in Youngstown..and this story cracks me up every time!!

FrozenExplosion : WARNING - Don't eat whilst watching this clip, i nearly choked on a mouthful of cornflakes when he started doing the mafia laugh......
