Comedian Paul Mooney was born in Louisiana and grew up in Oakland, California. As a youth, he literally ran away from home and joined the Charles Gody Circus, going down in history as the first African-American ringmaster. He was always writing comedy. “When I was ringmaster, I was doing jokes I thought were funny,” he says.
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 and co-wrote material on the groundbreaking Is it Something I Said? (1975), Bicentennial Nigger (1976), and Live on the Sunset Strip (1982) releases, as well as Pryor’s film Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life is Calling (1986). As head writer for The Richard Pryor Show, he was responsible for the national television debuts of Robin Williams, Sandra Bernhard, Marsha Warfield, John Witherspoon, and Tim Reid. As head writer during the first year of FOX’s In Living Color, also debuting the young Jim Carey, he also created the characters Homey the Clown and the brothers Tom and Tom, to name a few. He also co-starred with Damon Wayans and Jada Pinkett-Smith in the Spike Lee film Bamboozled (2000).
Mooney came into his own with his controversial debut album Race (1993). His follow-up release Masterpiece (1994) continues to stir anger, laughter, and thought. In addition to his latest recording, titled The Godfather of Comedy (currently airing on Showtime), his recent DVD releases include Analyzing White America (2004), Know Your History (2006), and It’s the End of the World (2010). “I always drop 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.”
