Comedian Paul Mooney

If you're easily offended, stay home. One of the most dangerous and brilliant comics of our time, Paul Mooney's first professional gig in comedy was with Richard Pryor. He later became the head writer for the Richard Pryor Show, and also wrote for "Sanford and Son", "Good Times", In Living Color", "Saturday Night Live", and many more.

Mooney's latest work can be seen on the Chappelle Show, in "Ask a Black Dude", and "Negrodamus".


Musical Performer Simone

Singer, songwriter and performer Simone's ability to transcend genres echoes the tradition of her mother, musical icon and pioneer Nina Simone. Blessed with a rich vocal range, an innate skill for lyrical interpretation and a soul-deep understanding of music as a means of healing, empowerment and celebration, Simone is very much her mother’s daughter, and a multi-talented artist in her own right.


Brooklyn's own DJ Evil Dee of the Beatminerz and Black Moon, spins through the night.

Sounds like a pretty amazing lineup for right here in the nabe!
