This unauthorized biography ends with the production of Superman III and tells of Pryor's undulating series of rise and falls from Peoria brothel scion to parallel careers as actor, recording artist, TV performer, and touring comedian. Particularly interesting is the story of Laff Records and much material is given over to Pryor's mysterious burning accident and recovery.
