    An Essential for Avid Comedy Fans

    Before They Were Kings is awesome. Not only is it hilarious, but it¿s really cool to see where guys like Chris Rock and Steve Harvey started. And when Michael Winslow gives his tribute to Woodstock, I was in utter disbelief and shock at how amazing it was. This DVD is a definite must for the collection of all comedy fans.
