Last weekend we had the pleasure and the honor to attend actress and comedienne Rain Pryor’s; daughter of the iconic comedian Richard Pryor; one woman show Fried Chicken & Latkes at the National Black Theatre in Harlem. The show was an eye opening look into Rain’s world as daughter of an African American star and a Jewish hippy. Every segment from the time a kid at school called her a “nigger” to the moment Richard Pryor passed on sent a mix of the feels through the audience. Laughter, tears, and even a little bit of the holy ghost filled the room as Rain conquered the stage just like her daddy. Take a sneak peek at the show above.
Whether you’re looking for a trip down memory lane, a look inside the mind of a biracial girl in Beverly Hills, or just a laugh we recommend Fried Chicken & Latkes. The show will run through June 28th.
