Preacher Moss -
The Awesome Factor:
Campus Activities Magazine Reader’s Choice Awards
2009 Winner “Best Diversity Performer”
End of Rasism: Comedy & Lecture Tour
“Understanding diversity and multiculturalism requires that we eliminate or reduce the anxiety of our ignorance and how to speak honestly when we can’t.” -Preacher Moss
Preacher Moss is clearly the new prototype for the comedian of these times and the times to come. A writer for “The Damon Wayans Show” and “Saturday Night Live,” his comedy stylings are distinguished for being sculptured out of the everyday relevance of life and the rare glimpses of truth we value as reality. He is intellectual, yet humble. He is charismatic and dynamic, but does not have to demand great attention or time because his audiences come to cooperatively listen, laugh and in “special” moments, reflect. Truly this is a rare combination. He is more than a comedian, priding himself on being just a man. Viewed, respected and revered as a man of the people, his words carry life and just as importantly, they carry laughter.
Armed with sincerity, intellect and rare comedic ability, Preacher Moss is the “End of Racism” Comedy and Lecture Tour. “Speaking on Truth,” Moss has been playing to the hearts and minds of college students and administrators all over the country. With his insight on “racial understanding vs. racial interaction” he has quickly become the funniest social commentator on the college scene today.
The “End of Racism” is not just the name of the tour, but a commitment that we all share. Preacher moss knows how to deliver the goods on how we see race through race through laughter, respect and the humility of a man who felt the sting of racism for not just blacks, but whites, gays, latinos, as the poor and the underclass of America.
Moss has a notable list of television appearances: NYC Urban Comedy Festival, BET Comicview, Comedy Central, Politically Incorrect, Nightline (ABC), Latino Laugh Festival. He has performed with many artist greats including Maya Angelou, WAR, The Last Poets, Stanley Clarke, George Lopez, Darryl Hammond, Chris Farley, George Wallace, Will Durst, and many more…
“Thank you so much for helping us bring Preacher Moss to campus. His presentation was fun and engaging. He connected great with the audience and everybody had a good time.” – Andy Herrera, Penn State University Behrend
“What a great performer! He expertly weaved funny stories and situations with important lessons about the differences between people. He made the students laugh, but also caused them to think. Between explosions of laughter, I could see the students digesting the information he was presenting to them. After his closing, students continued talking and laughing, but, perhaps, most importantly, they were addressing topics like racism, sexism, and homophobia because of what Preacher Moss had said. - Susan Taylor, Colorado Mountain College- Spring Valley
“He is an ‘undercover agent for social change.’ Preacher Moss’ lecture should be recognized as the lecture most likely to spark random acts of intelligence and good vibes.” -Jamaal Edwards, Coordinator of Coalition for Change Summit
“Delivering some of the most important things you’ll ever hear about diversity, he gives you the uncut truth and boy is it funny the way he does it. He’s absolutely unforgettable!!” -Damon Wayans, Actor/Writer
“I found myself astounded by his willingness to be vulnerable and talk about his journey to enlightenment in dealing with other cultures. I found myself nodding my head as he spoke the truths of the ‘new sexism’ as it applies to women’s causes. Simply amazing.” -Maxime B.Cade, Coalition of 100 Black Women (Montgomery Co. Chapter)
