simply unfunny
22 September 2002 | by (kansas) – See all my reviews

Jamie Foxx has forever presented himself as an unfunny comedian from his token turn in The Truth about Cats and Dogs to his now defunct sitcom, but with this HBO special, he has sunken to new lows. Starting off with terribly premature Taliban joke, (he constantly refers to the Taliban as Tenenbaum and other unneccesary things,)Foxx stands up to an audience that must have been regretting ever buying a ticket. This was the tip of the ice burg. Continuing with the stupid unnecessary jokes, Foxx goes on to explain his encounters with Jennifer Lopez's behind, his escapades at the Playboy Mansion, and a terrible bit about going to Africa, where he became aroused by a giraffe. His act is also quite homophobic, explaining that one only becomes gay after looking into Prince's eyes, cause he's so pretty. It would have been funnier to me if he had got up there and said, "I hate the Taliban, gays, and i love Jennifer Lopez's booty.", it would have made more sense.
