COMPLEX SAYS: Somehow foulmouthed comedian Richard Pryor found time in between doing a skid bid for tax evasion, promoting his That Nigger’s Crazy comedy album, and sniffing his brains out to make multiple appearances on Sesame Street. The appearance above is thoroughly awesome (thoroughly weird, too), but everything they filmed wasn’t used: the “How to freebase without setting yourself on fire” sketch was cut due to faulty methods.
LESSON TO KIDS: If a dude says he's crazy, it's probably because he is.
