Late Comedian, Writer For Richard Pryor Paul Mooney Remembered


  1. Tiffany Cross is beautiful in red today. Red is her color! I can’t imagine how wonderful this simple idea is! No florals plea. Too much.

  2. Chappelle’s Show, that’s how my generation remembers him, lol. I didn’t know who he was until that show was aired.

  3. “White people love Wayne Brady because he makes Bryant Gumbel look like Malcolm X.” RIP Paul Mooney

  4. Noooo… No. Paul Mooney… Thank you for being brave enough to share yourself with the rest of us.

  5. “you know what I really hate? When you’re sitting on the toilet…” -RIP Richard Pryor

  6. My favorite Paul Mooney moment: During the Rodney King riots before he did his set at the Comedy Club Mitzi Shore told him to cool the crowd down. “These are your people” she told him. Mooney went out and handed matches out to the crowd. “I love what you’re doing. Now burn down Beverly Hills!” he said.
    A true heavyweight
