This new documentary based on Richard Pryor (similar to their Last Days of Phil Hartman) which aired last summer, the documentary will explore the life of the Late comedian, as detailed by friends, peers, and admirers such as Tim Allen, Jimmie Walker, Howie Mandel, Mike Epps, Tim Reid, his former bodyguard Rashan Kahn, and his widow Jennifer Pryor. Also included are never before seen clips from his interview with Barbra Walters.
Almost 15 years after his death, ABC presents this two-hour look at the life and legacy of trailblazing comedian Richard Pryor. The special has never-before-seen excerpts from interviews with Barbara Walters, during which Pryor talks about his complicated childhood, growing up in a brothel and what drove his success. The special also features new interviews with Pryor’s widow, Jennifer Pryor, and with comedians and actors who worked with him (including Jimmie “JJ” Walker, Tim Reid, Lily Tomlin, Bob Saget and many others).
