Funny but also educationial
9 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Paul Mooney is truly one of the greatest comedians of all time. He has never ceased to make me laugh, which is why I bought this film. I watched this piece expecting to get only laughs. However, not only did I laugh my butt off, but I was also educated. He has a way of delivering the truth in such a funny way. Unlike most comedy shows, I left this one with knowledge. I received a lesson in Black History that I've never gotten anywhere else. He made me proud to be an African American. I STRONGLY recommend this film to anyone who is a fan of Mooney. Word to the wise...I would not watch this film with a different race. If you are WHITE, approach this film with caution. You will be slightly offended. Whether you like Paul Mooney or hate him, one can't help but respect his style of comedy. This does contain strong language and I don't recommend the presence of children. Never the less, this is truly one of Mooney's finest performance that deserves to be seen.
