Eight years after the death of perhaps the world’s greatest stand up comedian, this is a timely insight into a legendary and controversial figure. Featuring contributions from Whoopi Goldberg and Robin Williams, Marina Zenovich follows the brilliant Roman Polanski:Odd Man Out with another delve into the mind of a troubled genus. From an Illinois upbringing, to his highly controversial, expletive-ridden routines and a television and film career that constantly veered between triumph and disaster, Pryor was blighted by depression, substance abuse and accusations of domestic violence – as well as the famous incident in which he set himself on fire, and this is the definitive cinematic statement on the man.
