Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Paul Mooney is angry, fearless and very funny. Here he takes direct aim at racism and White America and hits his targets with dead-on accuracy — and humor. Whether pondering chubby white women’s attraction to skinny brothers, or examining the "N" word, Paul Mooney is unafraid of the truth — or the humor that is at the heart of controversy.

Mooney’s stand-up is legendary. Grammy®-nominated for his comedy album Race, he has spent years writing for other comedians as well. He started out as a writer for Richard Pryor, Redd Foxx and Eddy Murphy and was the head writer for In Living Color, where he created "Homie, The Clown." Recently he’d been a regular on the critically acclaimed Chappelle Show, most notably as the character "Negrodamus"

Paul Mooney Interview by Producer/Actor Tim Reid (WKRP In Cincinnati, Linc’s, Frank’s Place)

About the Actor

Though Paul Mooney reached a new level of public familiarity in 2004 with his appearances on Comedy Central’s "Chappelle’s Show," the comedian has made millions laugh for over 30 years. As a television writer for the classics "Sanford & Son" and "Good Times," sketch comedy shows "Saturday Night Live" and "In Living Color," and a long-time Richard Pryor collaborator, Mooney has lived in the public ear, if not in the public eye, for a very long time. As head writer on "In Living Color," it was Mooney who created "Homey the Clown" "Dial a Nigger" and "The Brothers Brothers," never one to shy away from controversial racial themes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paul Mooney - With all Comedy Go To Source. February 28, 2006
Format:DVD
Paul Mooney's Analyzing White America is the first readily accessible medium of Mooney's brilliance since the early 90's. With his previous albums R.A.C.E. and Master Piece no longer in production, this is the only place where you can see Mooney's brilliance.

Mooney's not for everyone. His material is sharp, and if you like Bill Hicks, Doug Stanhope, Dave Chappelle, or Chris Rock and are willing (if white) to hear thoughts far away from the mainstream media, then this is the best pickup possible for $10.

Watch it by yourself first, and then look at your social net and see who is capable of handling. For those, this DVD will probably be the best standup they have ever seen or heard.

Fans of Chappelle, Rock, Pryor : Go Back To Source. This is the man who has greatly influenced them all.

Format:Amazon Instant Video
Seriously, who doesn't like Paul Mooney? He tells it like it is.

This special is a little dated but still funny. He always delivers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Waaaay better than I thought it would be January 8, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Lots of negative reviews made me think I'd have to suffer through this, but, reluctantly, I didn't. Sure, some of the pontificating set me off. Who likes pontificating?

Mooney gasses away, sure. Maybe you like it maybe you don't. Is that any more or less than is expected from comics who don't shy from social commentary? If people like Mooney didn't do exactly what we see him do here, would he even have a job? Or be worth seeing? And would we, if not for comics daring and even overreaching sometimes, even have something to see?

Mooney is almost always fun. That's my first and best metric when it comes to judging comics. I've used it to fail some very funny comedians when they resort to easy racist cliche-mongering, and I'll happily use it to celebrate everyone who really brings the funny, whatever it stirs up. Mooney's historical(but funny) nonsense about Cleopatra aside, he ties the funny in to real issues worth thinking about. If you need an attitude adjustment, Mooney's your man.

I take it for granted that everyone is due an attitude adjustment. If you think you never do, you're probably in trouble. Mooney is here to help, and like all true wise men, he makes you laugh. He's flawed? Yeah, maybe. On the other hand, maybe he's just going for a laugh. This show is a mixed batch. If you want laughs, they're here. If you want pure truth, some is here, but mixed with other stuff. Don't expect this show to make you stop thinking by providing final answers or reliable facts. He's just a comedian after all. But he's lived a while and seen some things. Expect some questions to be raised, expect some laughs. Take it from there yourself.

He is hysterical! He is speaking the truth of the other side, the one that isn't represented in the media or in college!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not his best August 30, 2006
Format:DVD
As a big fan of "Race" and "Masterpiece", I was really disappointed by this video.

They should have shot this in a club, not in the studio. Technically, it's pretty amateur looking and the audience doesn't feel "present".

Content wise, it's not Mooney's best material. I found the whole show a bit flat.

Mooney's still an original and well worth hearing though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mooney is hillarious October 1, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just love the humorous commentary of Mr. Mooney and this DVD does captures some of the talent he has. However after viewing his shows in person over the past few years - one realizes that the DVD just can't capture the true essence of his material. I definitely recommend this DVD provided one is able to keep in perspective that this is just comedy and any resemblance to "real-life" is not Mr. Mooney's fault.

1.0 out of 5 stars Paul Mooney should just go away! December 12, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Paul Mooney is a Z-list hack!! If I could give this zero stars I would. Unfunny racist rants, amazing that he can stay out of the news and keep a career spouting this crap! Black people like to say that if you're not black, you can't understand their plight. Well, this guy doesn't understand anything! Even black people don't like his drivel. I saw a documentary on Richard Pryor(one of the funniest comics ever!), supposedly Paul Mooney was a "collaborator" of his. Well, if Richard used this guy's material, Richard was famous in spite of Paul Mooney, not because of him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Analyzing White America November 3, 2006
Format:DVD
There are some real laugh out loud moments on this DVD. Paul Mooney is very smart and quick and on the money most of the time. If you like comedy and have never heard of this man, take a chance, you won't regret it. A truly funny man at the top of his game!!
