The Human Tornado
“What you call dirty words, I call ghetto expression”, said in-your-face underground standup comic and R&B singer Rudy Ray Moore, who passed away 12 years ago at 81. This is the sequel to his first vehicle, Dolemite, which he based on a trash-talking wino who frequented a Los Angeles record shop Moore managed. Although his mainstream profile was minimal, Moore was well-known in the counterculture and influenced many comics and hip-hop. Moore lives again in the person of Eddie Murphy in Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander’s 2019 bio-drama, Dolemite Is My Name.
