I loved this.
5 February 2010 | by ottsidiusSee all my reviews

I saw this about ten years ago when I was 19 and it ignited a spark within me about the way I view America. I was already a fan of certain social commentators and comedians and this introduced me to a few more. Seeing which "comedians" came out of times of political unrest was interesting. From civil rights to Vietnam to the war on drugs, the times spawned many intelligent social commentators. Mort Sahl, Lenny Bruce, George Carlin, Bill Hicks... It really is a good watch. If not for anything else other than seeing Richard Pryor when he's about 20(?) singing the best version of Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out that I've ever heard. I had to use Audio Hijack to create my own mp3 version of it.
