About 34 minutes into it, when they cut to an audience member laughing, you can see the cameraman's shadow being cast on the audience member's chest. See more »
A bunch of girls think that you don't need no man to raise no child. Shut the fuck up with the bullshit! Yeah, you can do it without a man, but it don't mean it's to be done. Shit! You can drive a car with your feet if you want to; it don't mean it's a good fucking idea!

One of the most unfunny stand-up routines of all-time
Chris Rock has been funny in the past, but in "Bigger And Blacker" all Rock seems to know how to do is curse. And with that shrill voice of his constantly spouting expletives, it's akin to repeatedly getting hit over the head with a baseball bat. Also, Rock had this disturbing habit of pacing back and forth THE MAN COULD NOT STAND STILL; which, told me that he's very nervous and has little confidence in his routine. But, for some reason, the audience was howling with laughter! I could only conclude that they must of been paid for I could only manage a few forced chuckles -- and I was in the mood to laugh!
Now, I love Eddie Murphy. Eddie doesn't rely on just curse words or vulgarity to get a laugh like Rock or, the equally unfunny Andrew dice Clay. Thus, if you like that kind of humor, then maybe this is for you, but if you want real laughs, rent "Eddie Murphy Delirious."
