Rewatched by Noah 27 Aug, Extremely rough and mostly quite bad, but there's a heartbreaking quality in the overlong wino monologue at the end that—well, it didn't make this worthwhile , but I found some value there, at least. Overall, I would only recommend this for serious Pryor fans who are interested in a historical record of an early performance. Not one of Pryor best work in fact its not really that good. Pryor seems off his game and very high and tends to ramble randomly and forgets what he was talking about half the time.
