An HBO special edited from three performances from Chris Rock's 2008 comedy tour: London (dark suit, dark shirt), Johannesburg (black suit, white shirt) and New York (shiny jacket). Topics include the ongoing presidential campaign, the possibility of a black president, George W. Bush, gas prices, low-paid jobs, ringtones and bottled water, sex, relationships and the correct use of the n-word. Written by

I really like the experiments he did with the editing. Yes, it seems insane at first but as it progresses it becomes genius. Especially about the choices he made about which crowd/city to show for certain jokes: this is on another tip. I could watch this special on so many levels.
Chris Rock is getting old as a man, i.e maybe less fun, but there is something much more cerebral to this comedy special. Something more about the art of comedy.
I hope it goes down in history as an invigorating, new and groundbreaking presentation of comedy. You really get to see what it means to be a comedian and how you really connect to your crowd through jokes.
Give this one a blast. Don't have high expectations. just kick back, pour yourself some coffee and you'll have a laugh.
I promise u.
