Hearne: Richard Pryor’s Daughter Rain a Pain

UnknownAt some point being the kid of somebody famous ceases to matter much…

One would think, anyway. Because the kid’s career either takes off or it doesn’t. And I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that at age 44, comedian Richard Pryor‘s daughter Rain is hardly a household word.

Just saying.

That said, the singer / comic with an ultra short resume – most of her seven awards were bestowed upon her by the NAACP and minor entertainment or literary organizations – almost landed a gig here with Stanford’s Comedy Club.

However, from some of the demands her manager was making, you’d think it was her deceased father who was playing the gig.

richard-rain-pryor-ftr“You know Richard Pryor’s daughter wants all of these thing,” said an exasperated Craig Glazer. “But nobody’s ever heard of her. OMG, it’s her manager, not her. He started telling me all these things she needs because she’s royal, but in the comedy business she’s a neophyte.  She’s not an established standup comic.”

So what, she wants like color coded M&M’s in the Green Room?

“No, they’re trying to get her a contract with a per diem,” Glazer says. “And her manager wants us to pay her all the money up front in cash as soon as she gets here before she performs. But nobody gets paid until after their shows.”

The flip side of Rain Pryor:

“She’s very talented,” Glazer says. “She does celebrity, funny songs in their voice, like Cher and Miley Cyrus – big stars.”

And now?

“She was supposed to be here in May but her manager pissed me off, so I cancelled it,” Glazer says. “We’re going to move it to another time.”

Hey, what do you expect from a grrrl who’s father set himself on fire smoking cocaine and whose mother was a Jewish Go-Go dancer?

    Guess who popped back over, and what’s the first thing I see? A freaking story about the latently homosexual Glazer. I’m beginning to see a trend. See you in another 3 months. Perhaps you’ll come up with a story that doesn’t involve the most worthless human in Kansas City. I don’t get it…….do you two have a certain bond that some of us never really understood? He’s an authority on nothing, and barely understands his own business, yet you include his opinion on everything from sports to women to old man pool hangouts. Somebody needs a rework of his blog.

      Ah readers here is an example of what KC Star front page labeled website/blog trolls. Richard the fake name nothing nobody is just that. An unhappy borderline sadist who cowardly as the national research found, comments in a fake name and is hateful for no reason. These are sick ‘TROLLS’ this is one of them. There are others. So study the illness of this nut job. I’m a homo, don’t know anything about anything and nothing about comedy. I see. A real TROLL…good example thanks fake guy.

      uh sir cranium….I as the well coiffed commentator (no offense to the
      big guywilson) say you’re full of bull.
      glaze may have little knowledge about sports (as I have pointed out…but
      which is very minor in the scheme of life)…
      but to say he barely understands his own business is bull.
      guy has survived when others failed including the other club in
      north towne which has opened and closed several times. Many comedy
      clubs shut down…broke…gone…but he’s survived putting together
      some big acts along with somebreaking acts…that’s tough in itself.
      to say he knows little about the comedy biz is absoultuelu 100% bullshit.
      guy knows his stuff…survived one of the worst recessions in the
      entertainment biz…is a genius at public relations and getting the
      most exposure for his business FOR FREE…YES…ITS ALLFREE…
      as far as women…I give him the #1 rating…I don’t chase the
      skirts like I once did…but until someone takes his poontang title
      away…he’s the reigning champion. Regardless ….he knows hotties
      …like ablood hound knows raccoons…so he’s the king there.
      but to discount his business ability is pure crap.
      tell us ewhat you do….and what you’ve done.
      remember…self employment..making payroll…fighting egotistical
      artists andcomics…dealing with tough employees….dealing with
      a million different tough situations ain’t no fun sometimes…
      maybe glaze can give you a quick course in business that you
      don’t get even at Wharton….because I doubt you’ve done much
      on your own inyour life.
      good day..

        Don’t forget the piles and piles of illegally gained funds, as well as…..you know…..the Cocaine.

    By the way she may be a nice person, she just picked a manger, maybe a friend or boyfriend with little experience, she will learn. She is doing a big Vegas Venue, you never know she might still make a splash one day.

    Put her in a speedo, hang some gold medals around her neck, and slap a swim cap on her head.
    Google some pics of Michael Phelps.
    They say everyone has a double, this broad is Phelps spitting image in the face…

  9. Libertarian says:

    Rain has a very nice singing voice.

    I’ve never seen her stand-up bit, so you got me there.
