Rolling Out magazine reported recently that black comedy icon Paul Mooney is suffering with stage four colon cancer:
But Mooney hid it well; he continued to do his stand-up comedy routine. But now he needs the assistance of a cane and someone who has his back, his brother, Rudy Mooney.
“I’ve been with Paul since the start of this thing,” stated Rudy Mooney to Rolling Out and Rudy will be there until the end. But it does not look like that end is coming soon. Paul Mooney is still traveling all over the country, from coast to coast and even Canada. The longtime Oakland, California, resident can’t and won’t sit still.
Paul Mooney, never one to hold his tongue, wanted to address the reports on his health and talked to Roland Martin on “NewsOneNow” Tuesday. Watch for the whole story.
