Richard Pryor: Here and Now is the legendary stand-up comedian's seventh and final concert film. Pryor performs with the exuberance and creativity that propelled him to super-stardom throughout the 1970s. The performance was held at the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans and includes many of his most famous routines. These routines include â€œI Met the President,â€? where Pryor recalls meeting Ronald Reagan, as well as routines about the modern South and drug abuse. This show was the second time Pryor performed since his near-fatal, drug-related accident in 1980. Pryor spent two years in recovery. In 1982, he returned to the stage clean and sober to film Richard Pryor: Live on the Sunset Strip, after which he announced his retirement from stand-up. His retirement didn't last long. A year later, Pryor had too much new material to stay away from performance, and the resulting show became Richard Pryor: Here and Now.
