Professional reviews

"Narrator JD Jackson's baritone is perfect for this candid memoir of comic Richard Pryor, written in 1995 and now available on audio for the first time. Jackson's flexibility and confidence are evident throughout as he brings Pryor's quirky characters to life while performing many of his comedic reflections and monologues. Admittedly, the pronunciation of a handful of older entertainers' names, such as Billy Eckstine and Rudy Vallee, are mangled. More research and higher production values would have been helpful. But this is an enveloping life story, truly warts and all. Ultimately, the over-the-top use of profanity takes the listener deep into the psyche of the late comedic artist.
