Nasty boy


Mrs. Nathaniel Moore presents her son … Rudy Ray Moore   “A Comedian is Born”  A Comedian International Enterprises “Personality Series” release from 1964.    A micro-grooved performance recorded live at The California Club, Los Angeles.  Rudy Ray began recording as “Dolemite” in the early seventies and his act became more and more filthy.  Working bluer and bluer than Redd Foxx and Moms Mabley ever did.  Snoop Dogg said: “Without Rudy Ray Moore, there would be no Snoop Dogg, and that’s for real.”  He died in 2008.
