Dirtiest Comedian of All Time!

It's been 5 years since underground comedy legend Rudy Ray Moore died at age 81; he greatly influenced modern rap and hip-hop artists with his hilariously filthy 'Dolemite' and 'Petey Wheatstraw' routines and movies. He was no Rooty Poot.

Here's a taste from his ice cool indie film Dolemite - 'The Signifying Monkey' - warning, the language in this clip is FILTHY!


Rudy Ray Moore was popular thanks to his 'party records' of the 1960s & 1970s, comedy LPs that were as blue as you could get. They had a word-of-mouth appeal, Redd Foxx, LaWanda Page, Pigmeat Markham and other comics were popular on the same LP and nightclub circuit around that same time.

The covers of Rudy Ray Moore's records are hilarious in and of themselves, with titles like Eat Out More Often (1970), Dolemite for President (1972), and Good-Ole Big Ones.

Moore produced and starred in several low budget motion pictures based on his most popular routines like The Human Tornado, Monkey Hustle, and Disco Godfather.

Here's another of Moore's dirty routines, 'Chestnuts', sampled on Dr. Dre's Deeez Nuuuts - track #6 on The Chronic. Again not safe for work... but why are you here at work to begin with?!?

Here's another classic Rudy Ray Moore routine - Shine on The Great Titanic.
