Chris Rock: Kill the Messenger compiles material from Rock's most recent standup tour. With a running time of 90 minutes, Kill the Messenger incorporates what Rock considered the best moments of his routine as performed live in three locations: London, Johannesburg, and at New York City's Apollo Theater, the venue where Rock got his start in comedy. Originally produced by and broadcast on HBO in 2008, clips from the three separate locations were pieced together to create a completely new and unique version of his performance routine. Unabashedly politically incorrect, Rock skewers the era's biggest headlines and popular celebrity culture in the raunchy style that he's best known for. Rock rips on everyone and everything, including what he considers George W. Bush's political failings, John McCain's older age, and Octomom's obsession with reproducing. He lambastes both men and women, and comically deconstructs each group's stereotyped gender role within modern American society. No social issue is too taboo for Rock to tackle either. The show is replete with vivid monologues describing private sexual acts, infidelity, and race relations. Rock even offers a witty primer on when it's acceptable for Whites to use the rarely spoken "N-word." Rock delivers his lines with his trademark bluntness in this TV-MA-rated special.moreless
