…Is It Something I Said? is the fourth official album release by Richard Pryor and the first he released on a new contract with Warner Bros. Records, a label he remained with for the rest of his recording career.

Recorded at the Latin Casino in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, the album is notable for being the recorded debut of Pryor's memorable Mudbone, rural Tupeloan become Peoria tale-spinner and lie and storyteller and anecdotist; and for the disk center label credit of the "Just Us" track to Pryor's friend, writer and collaborator Paul Mooney.

In 1976, the album won the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Recording.

The album was the first Richard Pryor title to be remastered and reissued on compact disc. The album appears as part of the …And It's Deep Too! box set, with a bonus track, "Ali" (that first appeared on Richard Pryor's Greatest Hits) appended to the album.
