The comedy scene is a three-ring circus, so it makes sense, that one of its greats is a former ringmaster. Paul Mooney started his career cracking jokes during his stint with the Gatti-Charles Circus, went on to write for Richard Pryor and Redd Fox's Sanford and Son, and acted in films by Spike Lee and on Comedy Central. Now, Mooney is bringing his often controversial, always memorable, material to the stage at the Addison Improv. Paul Mooney performs at Thursday through Sunday at the Addison Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road. Tickets are $20. Call 974-404-8501 or visit improv.com for showtimes.
