Premise

The comedian's Emmy-winning 1970s variety series. What you see is what you get, and what you get in Wilson is a collection of memorable comic characters, including the outrageous Geraldine Jones, and the Reverend Leroy (of the Church of What's Happenin' Now), as well as Herbie, the Good Time Ice Cream Man (who had a nasty disposition). Richard Pryor was one of the show's writers and performers.
