Rock's first concert is a Hoot !
26 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While he is more popular for his recent concerts like "Never Scared" and "Bigger and Blacker" to his HBO T.V. Show as well as his early work on "Saturday Night Live," this is a must-own for any fan of the brilliant and daring Chris Rock.

This was his first "big" concert for the Home Box Office and it did deserve the Emmeys it got because it is very well written and will cause laughter to ensue every minute!

Rock wisely mixes his vulgar words along with his political views and general beliefs, thus, allowing each act to have a message behind it as well as the punchline getting executed 'no problem.'

While he is incredibly similar to his idol's Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Eddie Murphy, Chris relies less on "shock value" and doesn't repeat himself as often as other comedians do.

Recommended for people 16 and up ( contains strong language and brief sexual humor ).
