One of the best in late night
9 April 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chris Rock has made himself a good show with The Chris Rock Show. He brings funny and insightful sketch comedy, cool interviews, and many other things all at the hands of the comedian and host Chris Rock. Inventive and ingenious, this is one of the best you can find in Late Night Television.
