That Nigger's Crazy is the third official album release by Richard Pryor. It was recorded live at Don Cornelius' Soul Train nightclub (named after his TV show) in early 1974. This album won the Grammy for Best Comedy Album for 1974. The album's title was derived from a remark made by Pryor himself in Wattstax.

Initially released on Stax Records under their "Partee" imprint, the album's success was temporarily derailed by the sudden closing of Stax later in 1974. Pryor regained control of the master rights to the album and signed with Warner Bros. Records almost immediately; the album was reissued on November 10, 1975 on their Reprise subsidiary, three months after Pryor's ...Is It Something I Said? was released.

The comedy album found its way to Billboard music charts where it went #1 on its R&B/Soul Albums chart for four weeks.
