The Culture lost a comedic legend yesterday. Paul Mooney passed away from a heart attack at the age of 79. The comedian has a long list of incredible things that he has done during his career, including writing for various shows including “Sanford and Son”, “Good Times”, “The Richard Pryor Show”, “In Living Color”, “Chapelle’s Show”, “Real Husbands of Hollywood”, and “Saturday Night Live”.
The Oakland City Council was trying figure out some way to honor Paul. Unfortunately, he passed away before anything was confirmed. The good news is the council will continue discuss ideas celebrating the comedian including an annual comedy event spotlighting up and coming comedians and/or a scholarship fund on his name.
In addition to the Oakland City Council, Dave Chappelle says that Paul was the G.O.A.T and he will make sure that people don’t forget about the comedian.
Rest In Peace Paul Mooney!
