Paul Mooney is easily one of the most trenchant political satirists in the history of comedy. Best known as Richard Pryor's writing partner and best friend, and a regular guest on the iconic Chappelle's Show, his biting critiques of how America deals with race have made him one of the most intriguing and confrontational comics in the business.
Recently, Paul visited Toronto for his Last Stand tour and stopped by the VICE office to shoot the shit about a bunch of things, including media coverage of Barack Obama's presidency, the killings of Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis, and Toronto's crack-smoking mayor. He also told us about a sexual conspiracy in the White House.
Then he made our cameramen feel weird.
