Richard Pryor – Was It Something I Said?

...Was It Something I Said?

To mark the second anniversary of Richard Pryor's death, Russell Brand examines the incredible life and influence of one of America's most outspoken comedians. The programme hears from those who knew him best, including comedians who performed alongside him, such as Bill Cosby and Pryor's writing partner, Paul Mooney.

Pryor's extraordinary early life is also uncovered, with a visit to his hometown of Peoria, Illinois, to examine the influence of his childhood on his work, career and self-destructive tendencies.
