Richard Pryor

STAND UP! RECORDS along with Omnivore Records and Richard Pryor’s production company Indigo is proud to announce the release of the comedian’s first two albums, Richard Pryor and ‘Craps’ (After Hours) newly remastered on vinyl with bonus material along with Live At The Comedy Store, 1973, making its debut on vinyl.  Release date is Tuesday, May 23rd and MSRP is $39.98.


On Monday, October 29, 1973, Richard Pryor hit the Comedy Store for night one of a four-show run, the recording of which yielded one of the greatest comic documents of all time.


Naming him the #1 stand-up comic of all time, Rolling Stone wrote of Richard Pryor: “Pryor was untouchable ... If [George] Carlin is the brain and conscience of comedy, Pryor is its guts and heart, and it’s unlikely the man referred to as the ‘Picasso of our profession’ — by no less than Jerry Seinfeld — will ever be topped.”
