Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Jason Bergenfeld
After breaking in as a regular on Saturday Night Live 1990-1993, comedian Chris Rock knocked around a bit, eventually drawing attention during the 1996 presidential campaign with segments on Comedy Central's Politically Incorrect. HBO then came calling, and in 1997 The Chris Rock Show took off, affording the funnyman a platform to explore race relations and police brutality from a black perspective. Rock carved out a politically provocative comic niche, and he now stands at the forefront of working comedians, treating social issues in the tradition of Richard Pryor and Dick Gregory. The Best of the Chris Rock Show, Vol. 2 culls more of the funniest bits from the comedian's Emmy-winning show, including the Pamplona-inspired "Running of the Cops" and his own variation of the classic man-on-the-street interviews. Whether fighting in South Carolina to change the stars of the Confederate flag to the stars of the WB Network, or learning from professional boxers why white people can't fight, Rock lets his social criticism speak -- and laugh -- for itself. The program's hilarious high point comes when the comic puts all his strength and effort into having incarcerated singer Bobby Brown released from a Florida jail -- a classic protest you have to see to believe. Adding to the fun, the DVD edition features an additional 29 minutes of Rock's take on the HBO show Taxicab Confessions, as Rock, disguised as a New York City cabbie, manages to freak out unsuspecting fares with faux-intoxication and fears of a mouse on the loose in the backseat.
