Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic is a documentary film about the life of comedian Richard Pryor directed by Marina Zenovich. It aired in the United Kingdom on BBC Four, as part of their Storyville strand of documentaries.

This moving portrait of legendary comedian Richard Pryor chronicles his life from his troubled youth in Peoria, Illinois, to his meteoric rise as one of the most respected comic actors of the 20th century. Often misunderstood during the height of his celebrity, the late superstar has never been profiled this extensively. Marina Zenovich’s revealing and entertaining film lays bare the demons with which he struggled and reminds us just how daring and dangerous artistic freedom can be.
