  • Chris Rock puts on a very funny comedy routine

    Chris Rock is a genuinely funny guy. He is a far better stand up comedian than he is as an actor. Rock's humor is racy and controversial. Not for everyone's tastes. He's definitely gifted at what he does. I found his latest stand-up comedy routine to be hilarious. Possibly hos funniest one yet. The HBO comedy special takes place in Johannesburg Africa, The Apollo Theater in New York and London, England. The show is intercut back and forth between these three cities. The first section of the show focuses on the United States 2008 presidential election and why Chris Rock wants Obama to win. The rest consists of Chris Rock's regular mischievous controversial humor involving his signature vulgar jests and raunchy jokes. This special is for fans of the talented veteran comedian and people who aren't easily offended, enjoy edgy shock humor, witty banter as well as provocative, daring, and audacious antics.moreless
  • Chris Rock Stand-Up

    Chris Rock stand-up at its best here. Anyone who wants to pursue a career in comedy or thinks they are a comedian needs to watch this to see how to work a crowd and how to tell a joke. There were some of his jokes that were not that great yet his voice and the way he tells them make you laugh.

    His "n word" and "f word" rants were incredible. And he is absolutely correct regarding the usage of both. If it's in a song, it's okay. If a person is acting bizarrely and you need to call them one, it's okay.

    This was just classic stand-up here.moreless
