Over the past month or so, I've raved over this book. I've reached out to numerous people in hopes of sitting down with the Comedic Trailblazer, Paul Mooney (the epitome of "being yourself at all cost). Over the past 40 years, if it was classic comedy, Paul was more than likely one or two degrees in separation from that moment. From writing for Richard Pryor, to opening for Eddie Murphy during the groundbreaking "RAW" tour, to his role as "Negrodamus" on the Dave Chappelle Show, Paul was an architect of modern day comedy. Paul's contributions to comedy even helped to build the foundation for late night talk show hosts, David Letterman and Jay Leno.
If you are a history buff, or have followed any of the careers that I have just mentioned, you must read "Black is the New White". When you put this book down, you'll understand everything that has made Paul Mooney, as well as comedy, what it is today.
