Some comedy giants are rallying to help commemorate Paul mooney … including David Letterman, Tiffany haddish and Chris Tucker.
The memorial service for the late comedian is scheduled to take place on June 23 in the ballroom of the Roosevelt Hotel. We are told Tiffany and the actress Marla Gibbs confirmed their presence.
As for the former “Late Night” host, we’re told that Letterman – along with the Angela & John Witherspoon Foundation – are just a few of the peeps that contributed to the cost of the memorial service.
Actor Tim reid … with the actor J. Anthony Brown and Richard and Tina lawson also helped cover the costs.
Chris Tucker and George wallace are some of the comedians who cannot attend the service, but will instead send a video tribute. We are also told that invitations have been issued to Eddie murphy and Dave chappelle.
TMZ broke history … a starry tribute went down for the late comedian at the famous Hollywood Laugh Factory last month. The city of Oakland also honored him after Paul’s sudden passage.
Our sincere thanks to
