Live on the Sunset Strip is a comedy album by Richard Pryor. Released alongside a film of the same name in 1982, the film was the most financially lucrative of the comedian's concert films. The material includes Pryor's frank discussion of his drug addiction and of the June 9, 1980 night that he caught on fire while freebasing cocaine.

The album won the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Recording in 1982.
