Part live stand-up performance, part documentary, this film is one of comedian Richard Pryor's later stand-up performances. As foul-mouthed as ever, Pryor touches on most of the same topics as in his previous live shows.

Brilliant but not for the thin-skinned
4 June 2011 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

Most social commentators, mainly comedians, think that they are edgy but lets be honest most, if not all, have limits, but that's not the case with Paul Mooney.

He has the amazing ability of finding that darkness in race relations, a darkness some would like forgotten or ignored because of the pain in the injustice of it and then point it out in such a way that we can't help but laugh at the comedy aspect of it but then sigh at the immensity of its truth. His jokes are very cleverly crafted and while they might offend you they will cause you to admire the art in them.

Listening to Paul Mooney shows you the potency of the truth. If you think you are open-minded, if you think you believe in free speech, if you think you have the courage to speak your mind to whomever you want then watch & listen to Paul Mooney perform, he will be your litmus test to verify that.

Except for the late Tupac Shakur, the most conscious of rappers fails to portray the kind of boldness that Paul Mooney does. A legend in our lifetime.
