Description

Paul Mooney is one of the most dangerous and brilliant comic minds of our time. His first professional gig was writing for Richard Pryor, penning most of the hilarious routines for Pryor’s legendary Saturday Night Live appearance, co-writing material on the groundbreaking Live On Sunset and Is It Something I Said albums, and for Pryor’s film Jo Jo Dancer, You’re Life Is Calling.

A talented comedic writer, Mooney has served as head writer for some of television’s best comedies, including The Richard Pryor Show, Good Times and the first year of Fox’s In Living Color, creating the hilarious “Homey the Clown” skit. He also wrote for Redd Foxx’s Sanford and Son series as well as Saturday Night Live. Mooney appeared on Comedy Central’s Chappelle’s Show and released a live stand-up DVD, Know Your History: Jesus Is Black and So Was Cleopatra.

Paul Mooney came into his own with his controversial and critically acclaimed debut comedy album Race, for which he received a Grammy nomination. His album Master Piece continues to stir anger, laughter, and thought. “I always drop in some history,” he explains. “It’s knowledge. There’s always a message in my comedy and you may not get it that night – it’s like time bombs. It’ll get you a week later. You’ll understand.”
