Classic Indian Comedy: Charlie Hill on The Richard Pryor Show, 1977

It’s a pretty cool moment when Richard Pryor, as host of his own TV show, hands the mic to Charlie Hill. In fact, it’s more than cool; better adjectives might include “rare,” “unlikely,” and “unbelievable.” Why NBC gave Pryor, perhaps the most controversial comedian of his day, a variety show during prime time is a mystery that may never be solved; in any event the network regretted it almost immediately. Unsurprisingly, Pryor was thoroughly irked by network meddling and strictures. This clip is from the show’s fourth—and final—episode, which aired October 20, 1977.
