What a great storyteller! Paul Mooney had us rolling with laughter. He is so raw and real. The show was very entertaining. We love going to the Cobb. The food and drinks were good and reasonably priced.

Description

Paul Mooney’s first professional gig in comedy was with Richard Pryor. He wrote most of the hilarious routines for Pryor’s “Saturday Night Live” appearance, co-wrote material on the groundbreaking “Live On Sunset” and “Is It Something I Said” albums, as well as Pryor’s film “Jo Jo Dancer, You’re Life Is Calling.” As head writer for The Richard Pryor Show, he was responsible for the national television debuts of Robin Williams & Sandra Bernhard, to name a few.

Mooney wrote for the late Redd Foxx’s “Sanford and Son” series and was head writer for “Good Times”. He was the head writer during the first year of Fox’s “In living Color,” creating the hilarious “Homey the Clown” skit. On “Saturday Night Live” he wrote Chevy Chase’s famous word association skit. Most recently Mooney appeared on Comedy Central’s “Chappelle’s Show”.

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.”
