Quotes

Chris Rock: You know 'the stripper myth.' The stripper myth is: 'I'm stripping to pay my tuition.' No you're not! There's no strippers in college! There's no clear heels in biology! Shit, I didn't know they had a college that only took one-dollar bills. If they've got so many strippers in college, how come I never got a smart lap dance? I never got a girl that sat on my lap and said 'if I was you, I would diversify my portfolio. You know, ever since the end of the Cold War, I find NATO obsolete.' I haven't...

One of the finest stand-up comedy shows ever.
18 May 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

It's been a while now that I've been having increasing interest in stand-up comedies. I've already seen some good ones from handful of comedians, with Chris Rock being one of them, and I got to say that Never Scared is currently my favorite stand-up comedy show and is certainly one of the best showcases of what this genre can offer to entertain.

It's all about jokes and how you perform them. Chris Rock not only has some amazingly funny jokes, but also has a natural charisma in portraying them to the audience. He often makes weird faces, imitations, and changes on his voice into a harsher tone to make the jokes even funnier. That's how he forged a personality for his method of presentation. Chris Rock deals with subjects like popular culture, celebrities' scandals, rap music, politics, war, love relationships, African American related themes, among others. Be sure to find various topics about things that were happening in the world and especially in the United States at the time it was recorded, which I believe was in March of 2004.

This might pretty much be Chris Rock's finest recorded moment. If not, one of the finest, that's for sure. With Chris throwing several hilarious jokes, non-stop, from the beginning to the very end. All accompanied with Chris's singular way of doing it.
