- Comedian Rudy Ray Moore, aka Dolemite, is back with the never before issued on CD release of his 1972 cult, comedy classic, "Dolemite For President," which contains additional previously unreleased tracks from live Moore stand-up performances.

Hailed as the king of the party record and the world's greatest X-rated stand up comedian, Rudy Ray Moore should be no stranger to the mainstream community. Excerpts of his comic recordings have been sampled by the likes of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eazy-E, Eric B. and Rakim, Ice-T, Big Daddy Kane, 2 Live Crew, ODB, Busta Rhymes, and dozens of other platinum selling rap artists. "The man, the myth, the legend, Rudy Ray Moore...without him there would be no rap community," comments Snoop Dogg in an interview with Moore.

Rudy Ray Moore attained cult status as a pioneer of racy inner city and ghetto humor. He has inspired three generations of comics and a whole new generation of rap practitioners. From the late 60's through today, his "party records" have become classics to many nightclub goers and CD buyers. Moore in the 1970's also made his mark in the film world. During the "Blaxploitation" movie era, he produced and starred in seven films as "Human Tornado," "Monkey Hustle," "Petey Wheatstraw," "Disco Godfather," "Penitentiary," "Rude," and most notably, "Dolemite," which became an instant inner city classic. "The other presidential candidates promise everything. If you elect me President, I promise you nothing!" proclaims Moore, also known as Dolemite, who is running on the "I Ain't Lyin' Platform":

Reporter: Mr. Dolemite, why do you want to become President?
Rudy Ray Moore: "For the only reason the other two candidates do...to make dough!"

Reporter: How will you solve the current financial crisis?
Rudy Ray Moore: "I will legalize stealing."

Reporter: How do you stand on unemployment?
Rudy Ray Moore: "At the end of the line baby, to hell with a job!"

"The greatest influences in my career were the late, great comedians Red Foxx and Moms Mabley," reflects Moore. "I'm ready to run this country," continues Dolemite, "Eddie Murphy will be my Vice President and Lisa Lampanelli will serve as First Lady. Now, Lampanelli and I won't get married, we'll just shack up in the White House! So, November 4th, write in the only real choice on your ballots...Dolemite for President!"

Politically incorrect, surely, but in an era of crisis and uncertainty in Washington, Rudy Ray Moore continues to strike a comedic nerve within the stand-up community. "Dolemite For President" will be in stores on Election Day, November 4, 2008, released by Warrior Records distributed via Universal Music Group Distribution.
