Chris Rock: Kill the Messenger (2008)

Director: Marty Callner

Starring: Chris Rock

More info: IMDb

Tagline: South Africa, London, New York... HBO

Plot: An HBO special edited from three performances from Chris Rock's 2008 comedy tour: London (dark suit, dark shirt), Johannesburg (black suit, white shirt) and New York (shiny jacket). Topics include the ongoing presidential campaign, the possibility of a black president, George W. Bush, gas prices, low-paid jobs, ringtones and bottled water, sex, relationships and the correct use of the n-word.

My rating: 8/10

Will I watch it again? YES!

I've always loved Rock's delivery and style. Besides being very, very funny he's also very likable. He smiles a lot and that goes a long ways. Not much else to say except this performance is funny as shit. There were times where they would extend a bit by going to each of the 3 concerts. That was kind of neat. It would be interesting to see those concerts in full. I have a feeling it would have been just as good instead of being different. Regardless, this is a must for Chris Rock fans. Duh.
