Always wanted to be something. I never wanted to be white. I'm glad I'm black cause I'd hate to be white. Cause you all got to go to the moon.

How could anyone call this material dated? It is priceless, timeless and unmatched. It was also his first performance recorded for an album. I love it.
The skits are masterpieces! I learned about politics, religion, relationships, etc., all from Richard Pryor. He brought it to you real....and real funny.
He and Carlin set the standard for comedy. They were unafraid to delve into any area. This DVD is 20th century history and should be placed in a time capsule along with other significant items like the Rubix cube, The Watergate Tapes, and the Ford Pinto, etc. to ensure an accurate portrayal of the 1970s in America.
The King is dead but not forgotten.
