|02.06.06||Alamo Downtown|| Kicking off Soul Cinema mondays at the Alamo, this show totally sold out. It didn't pre-sell out, but it totally sold out all the same. Considering this is just about as old as I am, this really really stands up. I full-on belly laughed... and what gets me is aside from all the black/white comparisons he also has a whole bit on his dogs and his horse and stuff... who does that? Doing material on his heart attack and stuff, it really sets Pryor apart as someone who can make pretty much anything funny. really classic stuff. Now I'm gonna watch an Eddie Murphy concert film and see what's what.|
As a general rule though, I bet you can always walk in or turn the channel and tell exactly where you are in a comedy concert film by seeing how sweaty the comic is. Fresh shirt? you haven't missed much... is he drenched? then it's about over.
