This is bananas
on 25 November 2009
Chris Rock is one of America's finest stand ups, not just at the moment, but ever. His act is scathing, hilarious and unwaveringly on the money.
His unique vocal style, his preacher like attitude and immense confidence all add up to a majestic stand up figure. His act, based on the outspoken stylings of his predecessor Richard Pryor, is cutting, self-deprecating and, above all, side-splittingly funny. He is also one of the most intelligent stand ups since the fabulous Bill Hicks tragically passed away, and he is not afraid to speak his mind about contentious issues, such as Gay Marriage, Abortion and Black Oppression.
This DVD, Rock's fourth HBO special, is a masterpiece of modern american stand up. Buy this.
