Dolemite Is My Name follows the true story of the controversial Rudy Ray Moore, a comedian, musician, singer, actor and film producer from the 1970s. Faced with a series of failures in showbiz, the unsuccessful comedian Rudy Ray Moore has a revelation that turns him into a sensation: he gets on stage as someone else. Borrowed from urban mythology in Los Angeles in the 1970s, Moore takes on the character “Dolemite,” a pimp with a cane and an arsenal of obscene fables. However, his ambitions go beyond selling records deemed too indecent to be played by mainstream radio stations. When Hollywood closed its doors, the multipurpose Rudy Ray Moore used the proceeds from the recordings to finance and make his own film about the 1975 racial exploitation, “Dolemite.” Dolemite Is My Name (2019) is a hilarious celebration of a unique talent who has made his own legend.
