Rain Pryor is an acclaimed director, actor, stand-up  comedian,  educator,  dynamic speaker,  and  mother.  She started her nonprofit, Baltimore TheatreWorks which 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.
Pryor made her television debut in 1989 as a series regular, T.J.,on the hit ABC series  “Head  of  the Class, a character adopted from Pryor’s own monologues at the request of ABC producers during her second audition. She’s also starred opposite Sherilyn Fenn & Lynn Redgrave in Rude Awakening, and guest starred on tv series such as The Division & Chicago Hope. 
Stage credits include playing the title role of Billie Holiday in the Uk tour of The Billie Holiday Story & the title role of Ella Fitzgerald in the UK premiere of Ella, The Vagina Monologues with Nora Dunn & Charlene Tilton, and more. 
She currently has an award winning solo show based on her life called “Fried Chicken & Latkes”. It’s an irreverent and poignant look at racism in the 60’s & 70’s. Rain wrote & created her show including adding music & lyrics to the production. Her shows have played to sold out crowds & standing ovations every night at the Canon Theatre in Beverly Hills, CA., and in NY, Chicago, Ohio, Virginia, Texas, and Scotland. Growing up Jewish and Black gives Rain a unique perspective on race, religion, and spirituality.
