Post screening discussion of “Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic” included:
A nice anecdote by Wyatt Cenac about Tracy Morgan taking him to his first comedy club when he was interning at SNL
Tracy Morgan discussing Pryor’s influence on his growing up in Bed Stuy and fear of onstage experimentation
Walter Mosley lauding the risks of the short lived and censored Richard Pryor Show
Why hiring football Hall of Famer Jim Brown to run Pryor’s film company was probably not the best idea
Pryor widow Jennifer Lee discussing fights, gunshots, threesomes, awkward Cosby dinners and Pryor family strife
For casual fans and newbies, Omit the Logic is a nice entry point into getting a sense of Pryor and his impact at the time. Yet for longtime fans and folks hoping to glean a deeper insight into the man and his motivations, it still felt somewhat slight in its scope.
