Paul Mooney

**Paul Mooney on President Obama**
_Warning: contains brief moments of harsh language_

Fabled writer, Grammy-nominated comedian, and actor Paul Mooney pulls no punches as he puts history and the recent, highly fraught presidential election in his sharpened, sardonic sights. Drawn from a career with beginnings as a circus ringmaster and leading to years of notoriety as a comedy writer, Mooney's words have filled the mouths of Richard Pryor, Redd Foxx, and the cast of _In Living Color_. Although modern audiences best know him for his blistering work on _Chappelle's Show_, longtime fans recognize him as a fearless standup comedian who often skewers tender subjects like an accident-prone luau master, drawing on a deep and heartfelt sense of history with a burning, righteous ardor. For Black Man in the White House (The Second Term Tour), Mooney spares no targets in his politician-puncturing monologue, keeping his tone conversational and his observations knee-slappingly honest.
