“The Pryor Empire: A Richard Pryor Tribute" starring Timothy John This one-man show is the reincarnation of Richard Pryor! 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 long time fan favorite character, Mudbone. In addition to performing the life of Richard Pryor at the Apollo in N.Y., he was opened for celebrity comedian/actress Simply Marvelous, actor/comedian Euclid Gray, actor/minister Redge Green (Lil Chris from Boyz N Da Hood), and many more notable entertainers! “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

"He's one of the most phenomenal writers I've ever dealt with. I read one of his scripts and his script was better than the script that I was on tour doing. A really huge talent. God is doing something really big in his life and I'm just glad I can help in the premature stage like, 'That's my boy now. He did a interview with me now! So when he do get $50 million I can say shoot me a half'!"
