Two of the godfathers of hilarious, edgy political comedy come to the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre to make you laugh while you think. Known for his explosively funny, controversial and politically charged routines about race and current events, Paul Mooney is considered a living legend in the comedy world, having written for Richard Pryor, Robin Williams, Sandra Bernhard and Whoopi Goldberg. He's also been a writer for the TV shows Sanford and Son, In Living Color and Chappelle's Show. Dick Gregory has used his comedy and social satire as a form of political activism, and his activist efforts have extended to more serious pursuits outside of comedy as well. Discovered in 1961 by Hugh Hefner, Gregory went on to perform nationally and on television. He earned a place on Comedy Central's list of the 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
The evening includes a post performance reception hosted by the South Korean Consulate General.
The first part of the concert will feature two of Korea’s foremost traditional performers. Gayageum (zither) master Byung Ki Hwang and choreographer/dancer and National Intangible Treasure in Buddhist dance Aeju Lee, will be joined by other traditional Korean musicians Jeong Seung Kim (daegeum-bamboo flute) and Woong Sik Kim (changgo-percussion) in a program of traditional works and music by Byung Ki Hwang.
The second part, Ritual III is a collaborative work between composer Hi Kyung Kim, multimedia artist Elliot Anderson, Korean dancer Aeju Lee, and creative consultant Tandy Beal. San Francisco’s Ensemble Parallele (percussionist William Winant, violinist William Barbini, cellist Jean-Michel Fonteneau, and clarinetist John Sackett), conducted by Nicole Paiement, will be joined by Korean musicians (Jeung Seung Kim on daegeum and Woong Sik Kim on percussion) to perform the third in the series of Hi Kyung Kim’s Ritual pieces. These works deal with the topics of death and rebirth, the soul’s journey after death, and transformation of the spirit.
