Paul Mooney Coming To Durham
Paul Mooney is one of America's most brilliant comedians. His outrageous brand of comedy is punctuated by material that is often bitingly critical, sometimes devilishly offensive but always fiercely original. Given all of the bizarre current events in America — and the rest of the world — you'll want to be at the Carolina when this modern comic master unleashes his wit on Friday, August 29 at 8 p.m.
Mooney is best known to younger audiences from his turns on Comedy Central's Chappelle's Show in the early 2000s, but his comedy pedigree stretches back to the 1970s, when Mooney wrote some of the late Richard Pryor's funniest comedy routines.
In later years, Mooney served as head writer on television comedies such as Good Times, Sanford and Son and the first year of Fox's In Living Color, where he created the hilarious "Homey the Clown" skit.
What subjects will Mooney take on in his routine at the Carolina? Whatever he damn well pleases. The straight-talking comedian didn't establish his outrageous reputation by shying away from subject matter that shocks and offends. Be prepared for anything.
