I couldn't watch it
15 December 2006 | by Olympus9595See all my reviews

One of the worst decisions was to buy the DVD of this. Chris Rock is the worst stand up comedian I have ever listened to. People complain if white folks say that nword yet Chris Rock emits much more racism. About every joke that is on Bigger and Blacker has to do with sex or race. There are much more enjoyable stand up comedians, Chris Rock is not one of them. I simply couldn't not finish the DVD, fortunately I had the oppourtunity to return it. In conclusion I believe that Chris Rock gives African-Americans a bad name. He simply complains about how much the white folk are holding everyone down when he in turn is painting an image of sex and violence to the black race. He is a hypocrite and needs to learn about how the world runs and leave the race jokes out of his lineup. There are many many other African-American stand up comedians that are simply more enjoyable to watch then Chris Rock.
