Paul Mooney has been in show business for over forty years.  He was worked with Richard Pryor and Redd Fox and has wrote a lot of their stand up material.  During his stint on "In Living Color" he created Homey the Clown and has helped a lot of young comics get their start in the business.  His television work is truly hilarious (check out the two episodes he worked on Sanford & Son along with Richard Pryor) and he also ghost written a few shows on Good Times during it's final season.  His best work (in my opinion) happens to be when he was writing for Richard Pryor.  The two worked on some classic comedy albums and stand up routines during the seventies and eighties.  Check out "The Richard Pryor Show" and you'll see some innovative comic sketches featuring future stars such as Robin Williams, John Witherspoon, Tim Reid and Sandra Bernhard.

Today, Paul Mooney still works the stand-up circuit.  His shows are very hilarious and some of his material has caused people to live in the middle of his act  If you enjoy edgy social commentary comedy then I suggest that you check out one of his shows the next time he comes to town.  They're funny and his humor will cause you to reflect, think and laugh-out-loud at the same time.  Often imitated by other comedians (such as Carlos Mencia) but remember, there's only one Paul Mooney.  The original and truly a one-of-a-kind comic.
