Avenging Disco Godfather coasters, $4.99 while they last!

Rudy Ray Moore of "Dolemite" fame (or infamy -- you can guarantee a Moore movie, whether it's Dolemite, the sequel, The Human Tornado, Avenging Disco Godfather or Petey Wheatstraw the Devil's Son-in-Law will be one of the worst, and funniest, movies you ever saw) passed away due to complications from diabetes.

Rudy Ray's stand-up comedy doesn't hold a candle to his blaxplotation film work, IMO. It's standard bathroom fare with none of the cleverness of Richard Pryor, or even Redd Foxx. I love the movies, though. It's been at least ten years since I've seen any of them, and I can still quote about half of "Dolemite" verbatim.

A decent interview with Rudy Ray Moore is here. Apparently Rudy was the first guy to say "fuck" on record. I think his first comedy album came out in the late 1950's.
