Rain Pryor is an acclaimed director, actor, stand-up comedian, educator, dynamic speaker, and mother. As artistic director of the Strand Theater in Baltimore, MD, Pryor placed the theater on the DC/ Baltimore map, leaving the Strand with a surplus that it had not seen in its five years. She stepped down to start her non-profit Baltimore TheatreWorks. Baltimore TheatreWorks provides performance opportunities and builds a theatre arts culture for grades 6-12 in Baltimore City. Pryor is a headlining stand-up in her own right. She fills her own shoes where stand-up is concerned and is not trying to be her iconic father, Richard Pryor. She has been featured regularly in Baltimore with good friend Mickey Cucchiella. Together, Pryor and Cucchiella are developing many projects. The Baltimore Sun chose Rain as one of 3 area comics to watch. "Fried Chicken and Latkes" is Pryor's award winning solo show based on her life. It is a irreverent and poignant look at racism. Rain completely created and wrote her show, including adding some original music and lyrics. Rain was a Los Angeles Times "Critics Choice" and her singing voice and sense of timing were hailed as rare gifts. The NY Times "Critic Pick" and review says, “she has an outsized presence built for Broadway." The show is the recipient of the NAACP Theatre Award, Best Female Performer Equity and was recently selected as a Celebrity Solo Performance for the National Black Theatre Festival. She stops by to chat on Tuesday, June 18, at 7pm EST.

Furious Cool: Richard Pryor and the World That Made Him
Richard Pryor attracted admiration and anger in equal parts. He was a comedian who many consider the greatest ever, yet his triumphant stand-up work has been largely eclipsed by his mediocre movie output. His personal life was likewise something of a contradiction, because Pryor was a man of deep intelligence and sensitivity yet was also someone who could never seem to make the pieces of his life come together to create a whole. His was a fascinating, larger-than-life personality; he was as pivotal and essential a figure. Pryor the solo artist brought to a pop-obsessed generation the news that they had a past with deep roots that spoke to our shared humanity.
David Henry is a screenwriter and his brother, Joe Henry is a singer/songwriter as well as a music producer. This is their first book, and they are working on a screenplay based on Pryor's life and career.
