Security? How about lower ticket prices
28 May 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This special appears on cable from time to time and I really wonder when standup's became story teller's? There is not one joke on this special. Not one one-liner would have appeared on Letterman or Leno or ... Not one thing he says is poetic, like one reviewer previously mentioned, and if his performance were to be transcribed, it would be in no way, shape or form, be legible. Luckily, Foxx is enthusiastic, the reason acting gigs keep popping up. He finds his material funny and his smiles translate to audience smiles. His amicability hides many of his shortcomings in regards to old jokes or no jokes at all. Still, it's only shown late at night and if you enjoy falling asleep to a Foxx talking about Africa, this might be for you.
