Episode 77: Richard Pryor


Recommended Posts

A much-delayed Hey, an Actor sees The Brothers Wilson take on some choice entries of the filmography of the groundbreaking stand-up comedian and actor Richard Pryor. Both hosts experience Brewster's Millions for the first time, whilst Pandy nominates one of Pryor's many collaborations with the great Gene Wilder in See No Evil, Hear No Evil, and Ian finally allows a comic book movie to be covered on HAA via Superman III. We also deliver a mea culpa from Ian (RE: the podcast's delay), gain Evie Wilson's familiarity with the DC Universe, and, in a first for the podcast, announce the subject of our End of Year special (to be recorded very soon).

If See No Evil, Hear No Evil was made today, there's one scene in particular that would need to be removed - Richard Pryor forcibly groping Joan Severance. Yeah, um... sexual assault is not funny. I didn't think it was it particularly funny in 1989 either, when I was 15 years old. It was kinda uncomfortable.

It was kinda nice to see Richard Pryor worrying about what "the guys at the club" would say when he discovers he is not white... when the clear implication is that the guys are perfectly happy with having a black man in the club.

Great episode, BTW.
