Before They Were Kings, Vol. 2

Starring: Martin Lawrence, Dave Chappelle, Steve Harvey, Michael Colyar, Keenan Wayans, Vince Champ, John Ridley, Charles Cozart, Ralph Harris, Dwayne Cunningham, Sean Corvelle

More info: Amazon

Plot:  See some of your favorite stand-up comedians do their routines before they became megastars.

My rating: 6/10

Will I watch it again?  No.

Don't expect a laugh-fest from this DVD compilation of comedians doing about 6 minutes each.  First of all the routines are taken from an A&E stand-up show so they comedians don't get blue.  They keep the language clean.  It was interesting seeing Martin Lawrence before he developed his persona that everyone knows now.  He changed.  All of the other big names that I knew had their stand-up persona down at this time.  I only laughed at three and the most and biggest came from John Ridley.  Holy fuck was that guy funny.  He has that edgy, twist the joke quick to get to the sick style of Dave Attell and I love it.  The other two were Charles Cozart and Michael Colyar.  The Xenon DVD has this broken down so you can play all or go to each comedian as you like.  The only extras are trailers for 8 movies and you have to go to the chapter menu to see the link.
