From the Video Vault: Richard Pryor lights the fuse on Dynamite Chicken. In this, his very rare first movie appearance from 1971, the revolutionary King of Comedy romps through this daring farce with an army of legends at his side. A collection of skits, parodies and musical sequences pro-sex and anti-war. It is film history. It’s clever style, humor and commentary should be enshrined in a time capsule. Pryor hits the city limits with his zany brilliance and wry view of life. Special guests Fred Willard, Joan Baez, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Jimi Hendrix, Malcolm X and Andy Warhol, etc. help Pryor color the world with dynamite art, poetry, philosophy, politics, comedy and music. Light the Dynamite Chicken!
