May be the funniest stand-up performance I have ever seen, 8 August 2001
Author: dangerhorse from Houston, TX

Chris Rock's Bring the Pain may be the funniest stand-up comedy I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. The barbs are excrutiatingly accurate, raunchy, and hilarious, and are (no kidding) extraordinarily thought-provoking.

Just so you know where my commentary is coming from, I am a 40 year old, white, middle-class male from Houston, Texas. I have seen Rock's talk show on HBO, and haven't really cared for it. I thought he was reasonably entertaining on Saturday Night Live, but nothing spectacular. When it comes to stand-up comedy, I'm a big fan of circa 1978 Steve Martin stand-up (Wild and Crazy Guy) and I love Seinfeld's 'I'm Telling You for the Last Time'.

Do yourself a favor, rent/buy 'Bring the Pain' and prepare yourself for some mind-blowing, prejudice-shattering, side-splitting hilarity.
