Funniest Man In The World !
19 October 2004 | by drzeusmonkeySee all my reviews

When i bought the DVD i was wondering to myself whether it would be better than his previous HBO specials ,"Bring The pain" and "Bigger And Blacker". Well i found it is was just as funny or even funnier.

The high points of this stand up were the hilarious jokes about the government and why drugs are illegal, oh and how much black people love rims. What makes this so funny is that the jokes are so TRUE.

The low points were well not many well actually only one, Chris Rock used a bit too much swearing to my liking and it made some jokes just not as funny.

All in all you have got to see this stand up. Never Scared came close but my favorite stand up is still Peter Kay : Live At Bolton Albert Halls. Well played though.
