Three years ago, Moss was standing onstage at a comedy club, watching people laugh while he sipped his 13th Long Island Iced Tea, fortifying himself for the trip into the jungle later, where he would buy crack. This was enough, complete strangers telling him through their laughter that he was okay. Cocaine kept the laughter going. After a few years that wasn’t enough, so he started smoking it. He had a first class ticket on a Lear Jet to hell. _Laughter is misleading.
_After attending The School of Performing Arts in San Diego on a scholarship, Moss worked as a stand-up comic for several years, appearing on Showtime, HBO and opening for such luminaries as Aretha Franklin and Smokey Robinson. The San Francisco Chronicle said of him: ”He has that marvelous ability to instantaneously assume a complete character that makes Richard Pryor and Lily Tomlin so electric in performance.” Moss received a Critics Choice award for his role in the independent film “Street Music,” is the recipient of a grant for ‘Outstanding Solo Performance’ from the Marin Arts Council and has appeared in a short film, “Shadows,” which he wrote and directed.
