Richard Pryor's Comedy Still Stands Up

Rain Pryor continues the laughs of her legendary comedic father

"The greatest comedian of all time" — words that typically follow the name Richard Pryor. He made millions laugh with his onstage standup routine. And he made just as many cry through his struggle with drug and alcohol addiction, a battle that often made its way to the stage. But few people had the opportunity to see this duality play out up close. Richard’s daughter, Rain Pryor, was one of the only people who saw both the fame and pain in her father’s life, and says she wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Rain credits her “Pryor Experience” for shaping who she is today. While she has worked in television, performing arts and even as a teacher, she spent a lot of time running from what everyone thought she would naturally do — comedy. Now, wiser and armed with her own experiences to share, Rain is taking the stage and sharing her own brand of comedy.

My Generation turns the spotlight on the legendary comedian’s daughter to learn how drama, laughter and love shape her life on and off the stage.
