Pryor signed with the comedy-oriented independent record label Laff Records in 1970, and in 1971 recorded his second album, Craps (After Hours). Two years later, the relatively unknown comedian appeared in the documentary Wattstax (1972), wherein he riffed on the tragic-comic absurdities of race relations in Watts and the nation Pryor also performed in the Lily Tomlin specials. He is seen here with Tomlin and Alan Alda in Tomlin's 1973 special.

Of course, Pryor was funny even before he started using the N word in his album titles, and he's certainly funny here, albeit in an unexpectedly laid back way. The best bits here include a riff on White Protestants (he's sympathizes with them because they have nothing to blame their failures on), a conversation between a heart and a brain (the brain has been naughty), and a convincing explanation of why you can't get into heaven with straight hair. THE WIZARD OF COMEDY is classic stand-up comedy as only Pryor can do it.

In 2004 the award was reinstated within the comedy field as the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album, once again allowing musical comedy works to be considered. Bill Cosby holds the record for most consecutive wins, with six earned between 1965 and 1970. Peter Schickele (of . Bach fame) is the runner-up, with four wins between 1990 and 1993. The Wizard of Comedy – Richard Pryor. The Rutles – The Rutles.

The Wizard of Comedy is a solidly funny effort; Pryor's debt to Bill Cosby is evident throughout (on "Heart and Brain," among others), but the more theatrical, more versatile Pryor went places Cosby never dared, or wanted to. - -Michael Gerber. This is the only Richard Pryor CD I listened to and didn't laugh one time. Please, do not waste your money on this. I gave this CD to my brother because he laughs at everything.
