He says "When I was Ringmaster, I was doing jokes I thought were funny."

Paul Mooney came into his own with his controversial debut album Race. Masterpiece continues to stir anger, laughter, and thought. His latest DVD's, Analyzing White America, Know Your History, It's the End of the World and his latest release currently on Showtime, The Godfather of Comedy, Mr. Paul Mooney. "I always drop history," he explains, "It's knowledge; There's always a message in my comedy and you may not get it that night - it's like time bombs. It'll get you a week later. You'll understand."
