Craps (After Hours)

Craps (After Hours) is the second album by Richard Pryor, released in 1971 on the Laff Records label. It was released during the comedian's transitional period from a middlebrow "Cosbyized" comic into a more improvisational, socially conscious, controversial brand of raw humor that Pryor would help to pioneer during the 1970s. Several monologues from the album were repeated for Pryor's first concert film, Live & Smokin, though that movie would be held from release until 1985 as a VHS videotape. Recorded at Redd Foxx's club in Hollywood, Pryor is introduced by the emcee as "the crown prince of comedy".

For some unknown reason, possibly a mix up at the record producer, some LP's were pressed with a comic referred to as Hotshot Hogan on the B-side.

Side two of this album was later re-released in a split LP with Redd Foxx, "Pryor Goes Foxx Hunting" (Laff A170).
