Rain Pryor Cover

Rain Pryor  is an American actress and comedienne.

Pryor was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Shelley R. (Bonis) and American comedian Richard Pryor. Rain Pryor’s mother was a Jewish go-go dancer and Rain was largely raised with her Jewish maternal grandparents, who taught her about Jewish culture.  Her mother was urged by her family to put Rain up for adoption, rather than deal with bringing up a child “in a world that wasn’t ready for biracial children.”Rain was rejected by the African Americans and the Jewish Americans in her life, thus creating a unique voice in her award-winning solo show Fried Chicken and Latkes that explores racism in the late ’60s and early ’70s.In regard to her background, Pryor has joked that while growing up she felt “proud, but guilty about it.”

Pryor is also a jazz/blues vocalist since 1993, having played to sold-out crowds in Los Angeles, DC, Hong Kong, Scotland and London where she released a performance CD Rain Pryor Live in London. Her live cabaret received four stars.

Pryor created and toured in the award-winning show based on her life, Fried Chicken and Latkes in 2004 and 2005. She appeared in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2006.

In 2012, Rain was named the artistic director of Baltimore’s Strand Theater.

Harper Collins published her book Jokes My Father Never Taught Me in 2006.
