Horrible! I am (or was) a big fan of Chris Rock, especially his SNL work and earlier comedy specials. But this piece of garbage is a nightmare to watch. It was filmed for HBO in New York, London, and Johannesburg, and they CONSTANTLY edit between the shows, sometimes more than once during a single sentence. So the fast editing, the changes in clothing, etc quickly become a tiresome distraction. You just want it to end, or like I did, just listen to it like a comedy CD.

There are a few laugh-out-loud moments, but they are few and far between. The jokes are often predictable, and the topics covered are VERY predictable and worn out. What's more, some are downright revolting, and I am a very difficult person to offend regarding such material. What was more offensive was that it just wasn't funny.

Filmed in 2008, the whole first section was dedicated to bashing John McCain, Sarah Palin and George Bush, and then telling us how cool Barack Obama was. Sadly, we all know how that turned out. Don't get me wrong, there were some funny moments, like how the name Barack Obama didn't mask the fact the man was a "brother," and how unsuitable Michelle would be as a First Lady because any black woman in that position would demand to be co-President.....I ended up skipping to the next chapter.
