Born Paul Gladney in Shreveport, Louisiana, Paul Mooney was raised mainly by his grandmother, known affectionately as Mama.
It was Mama who gave him the nickname of "Mooney," but never explained the inspiration behind the name. Mooney started his
career in entertainment as a ringmaster with the Gatti-Charles Circus. He found himself penning comedy and telling jokes even
during his stretch as a ringmaster, which eventually helped him land work as a writer for Richard Pryor. Mooney was responsible
for writing some of Pryor's routines for Saturday Night Live and co-wrote material for Pryor's albums, including Is It Something
I Said. He also wrote material for Jo Jo Dancer, You Life Is Calling, a Pryor film. As the head writer for The Richard Pryor
Show, Mooney helped launch the careers of many comics, including Sandra Bernhard and Robin Williams. Additionally, Mooney
wrote for Good Times and Sanford and Son. Later on, Mooney became the head writer for In Living Color, Mooney created the
famous character, Homey D. Clown, played by Damon Wayans. In his tenure as a writer, Mooney has made significant contributions,
and he continues to write material for his own stellar routines. To catch a live appearance of this dynamic comedian, secure
