Chris Merrick : This guy could make you laugh at a funeral on Christmas Day

Erin Maria : i am italian, and i can confirm this is how italians act haha the hug thing is tootttaaallly spot on

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

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

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 ..

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.

Amareto : Johnny Salami , Gabuzo brothers .. lol

hassan palomo : Makes me wonder if this really really happen.

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.

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

FeFe : He got better as he got older, he started to really become comfortable with telling some of the more explicit parts of his life and turning it into an actual stand up routine. He held back a lot in the early years because the world wasn't ready for him.

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

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.

NWOization : Richard Pryor is the best comedian that has ever graced the stage.

zoo05zoo : You can tell that he actually worked around the mafia and Italians. This is some real stuff.

nazrul Jalil : thank you everyone for loving this vid cheers :-)

pipeandslippersman : the way he moves, the way he slips into the voices, the way he just throws away the one liners like they're nothing... brilliant, a true one off!

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

willis725 : Me, Johnny Salami, da Gabuzzo brudders!!

Don't Touch My Silver : He does mafia, better than the mafia

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

daweller : He is more Italian than today's guido douches

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

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.

James Blevins : Story teller supremo...No one can ever top this man...American Original Gangster... Murder stories???

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.

R Santigogo : dave chappelle really patterned his style like pryors
