Richard Pryor

SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Shelley Berman
Inside Shelley Berman (Verve) :: But the coolest of the cool remains Mr. Berman, who’s still making bridled anxiety an art. Even cooler: His classic telephone routines are more relevant today than they were back in the ’50s.

Be seeing you!
