Lights Up pt. 1
Interviews, reviews, memories, and sneak peeks with the cast of THE PRYOR EMPIRE: A Richard Pryor Tribute by Timothy John! Official dvd of the stage play coming soon along with an encore performance of the show!
Fifteen years ago actor, writer, director, and producer Timothy John left his hometown of Kansas City to follow his dreams. At the request of the show's executive producer, he gave a breathtaking tribute to Richard Pryor at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, N.Y. now he's set to relive this tribute for KC audiences!
Almost ten years have passed since Richard Pryor, arguably the greatest comedian ever, lost his battle with multiple sclerosis. Pryor will never lose his position as cultural icon, and we can only hope that a cure to this debilitating disease will soon be found so we don't lose another soul that reaches out and touches as did Pryor and his ability to allow us to experience our reality with the outrageous, profane, and conscience perspective that only he imparted.
“The Pryor Empire” will feature Timothy John as Pryor from his teenage years up until the years of his last breath. He will also bring on Pryor's former wives, closest friends, and his long time fan favorite character, Mudbone.
“The Pryor Empire” is guaranteed to entertain and electrify audiences as if Pryor were still alive.
"I always wanted to star as Richard Pryor in the movie of his life. Post-Jo Jo Dancer, his complete biopic. No one's called about the movie yet, so I decided to do this one-man show in honor of the man I looked up to and give back to his family, his struggle, and his legacy.” -Timothy John
What a blessed time we're having fellowshipping with family and friends. This week I'm real excited to have one of my good friends CHARLENE PRYOR!! Leading the class study. We go back a day or two. I thank the LOrd for her valuable insight into the Bible. I'm sure you will be blessed with this segment. We will be picking up at Matthew 12:30
Matthew 12:30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
