        Pryor's Early Career | Richard Pryor: Icon

        Hear about Richard Pryor's early career, which he built by following in the footsteps of comedians popular at the time, such as Bill Cosby.

Pryor's easy humor garnered the attention of thousands of viewers and propelled him into standup comic stardom.
