So underrated
10 July 2018 | by doxxman5See all my reviews

I have no idea why this show has so few reviews, this is such a pioneering show! Before Chappelle, before Key and Peele, This show was on HBO in 1997. And it has 5 seasons! The musical guests are awesome and varied, the skits are really funny, the interviews on the street are very insightful, and everything is no holds barred - lots of race humor and sex talk. But its all smart and tasteful. One one episode he tries to get a petition signed to change the name of a street to Tupac Avenue or something, and he convinces people to sign it! Chris Rock just has that appeal to everyone, it is so fun to watch. This needs to be widely seen by everyone - let's make HBO bring it back into rotation.
