I am a character so my friends call me and I've seen alot of stand-up shows everyone from Richard Pryor to George Carlin and I have to say that Chris Rock's Bigger & Blacker is the funniest show I've ever seen Because it touches on all subjects we can relate to. Race really isn't an issue, he talks the truth that is why it is so funny. Bottom Line Bigger and Blacker the greatest comedy show ever recorded....
