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.

Customer Reviews

This type of movie perpetuates racism in America.
J Reese
If he were a white man talking about black people, stereotyping them, he'd be called a racist.
Nicole M.
Anyone with an open mind who likes to laugh will probably enjoy it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I thought it would be better. It was mildly funny. The quality of the video is reminiscent of a boot leg version of.....well, of anything. Do not expect elaborate sound, lighting or editing techniques because the producers of this piece couldn't afford it ....clearly. Paul Mooney is funny which is why you will likely buy or rent it....but I've seen him much funnier in Chappelle Show sketches.

The content is decent, as previously indicated the quality is poor and if you happen to be of Caucasian decent (I'm African-American myself), then prepare to be dissed and dismissed. I felt mildly uncomfortable for some of the Caucasian audience members in attendance, but Paul Mooney is supposed to be a thought-provoking, challenging and confrontational and unapologetic comedian whose material is racially focused. So basically, you should know what you're opting into and if you don't that's what these reviews are for. Just remember, if you are Caucasian, then chances are that you will likely feel uncomfortable some if not most of the time.

This should be a .99 cent rental. The pricing for this offering was not adequately calculated or licensing rights were not negotiated well enough to offer the consumer better pricing options given the production quality and running time. Point is, you can spend your money on a pack of gum and be just as entertained. You won't be missing anything.

A lot of what Paul Mooney has to say is really important for white people to hear. I will continue to watch this comedy session to shake myself up.

But the use of the N-word in a comedy context is just something I have a tough time with. I don't think anyone should call anyone else 'n*****', even if the name-caller is a Black man talking to a Black audience. It's my white perspective: there are too many implications created by the dynamic (and white guilt is no longer one of them, by the way).

I don't know if the intent was to wake up people to the racism still alive and well in our society, and in some segments it does seem that Mr. Money is trying to get at something. But at other parts, seems he is just running a comedy show.

Anyway, I welcome more serious content like this that helps keep us aware (especially people like me who grew up prejudiced and still are prejudiced by default) of the attitudes and assumptions we have.
