Product Description

Chris Rock, the three-time Emmy Award-winner, comedian, actor, and host of HBO's acclaimed The Chris Show, stars in his fourth solo stand up special for HBO, Chris Rock: Never Scared. Featuring his unique, insightful, and hilarious views on a host of social, political and, celebrity issues, Rock confirms his stature as the leading comic of our time. Filmed at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., this is a must have for any fan of great comedy.

Amazon.com

Chris Rock: Never Scared is the hot comic's fourth HBO special and proves as disciplined and trenchant as his previous cable concerts. Announcing he's a recent father, Rock proclaims his biggest job is keeping his daughter "off the pole," i.e., steering her away from the life of a stripper. Warming to the theme, Rock asks why so many strippers earn money to pay for expensive tuitions yet he's never received "a smart lap dance." Things turn topical as Rock argues that his government won't solve the murders of rappers. ("More people saw Tupac get shot than watched the last episode of Seinfeld.") After taking broadsides at Michael Jackson ("Ed Bradley tried his best to make Michael look like a mammal!") and David Blaine ("Are we so desperate we fall for a trickless magician?"), Rock builds to a near-lecture (funny, though) on why white America won't let people of color acquire real wealth. --Tom Keogh

Chris Rock - Never Scared is the fourth time he has appeared in an HBO special. It's a very unique comic performance. Filmed at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC, the show starts off slowly, with Rock doing material about strippers and rap music that really is more nasty than funny.

But he quickly gets back to the hilarity when talking about Michael Jackson and the King Of Pop's relatives, as well as NBA baller Kobe Bryant and RNB star R. Kelly. The laughs come fast and furious through the middle of the show in a big, big way!

However, the surprise comes in the second half when the concert changes again, and this is where the routine becomes almost too true to be funny. Rock prowls the stage and talks of some very serious topics from some very intriguing angles. He's almost preaching a sermon when speaking of the difference between "rich" and "wealth." His points about marriage and Affirmative Action could be put in a Sociology textbook! It's simply brilliant and razor sharp commentary.

Rock claims his place as the top stand up in the country with this performance. As an extra treat, you get to see Rock's first HBO special, included as a bonus.

It's a must see. Highly Recommended!

I have never really watched any of Chris Rock's stand up's, but when I rented "never scared," I thought it was the funniest stand up I've ever seen. Chris Rock is really funny in this, and what I like is that he makes so much sense when he's talking about politics, or pretty much anything that affects us in our every day lives. I've read some of the review's that some people wrote, thinking that some of the things that Chris Rock says about white people seem to be prejudice. I didn't think that at all, and neither did my mom (who's white), and who loved it. I asked her after we watched it, if she was offended by any of the stuff he was saying when he started mentioning race, and she said she wasn't. The way I look at is, Chris Rock is a very intelligent person, who's just speaking the truth about history, and how there still is racism out there. The whole show isn't about race, he talks about other issues too that make all of us think, politics, war, drugs and other things. He's serious when he talks about this stuff, but he also does it in a way that will make you laugh. Overall he's a real funny, smart person. I reccomend watching this, watch it with your friends, or with some people in your family, maybe it will make them think about certain things, and of course also laugh. Some people who've watched this say "Oh it's not like "Bigger and Blacker," or it's not like "Bring the pain,", yah, because it's different. Obvioulsy anytime Chris Rock comes out with a new stand up, it's going to be different from his others. I don't think some people understand that when you get older and you're a comedian, you're not going to keep writing about the same stuff all the time, it's going to be different each time. No matter what, I think his stand ups will always be funny.Read more ›

I don't know how he does it, but Chris Rock has a way of turning the average bits and pieces of all our lives into something absolutely too funny for words! I will never understand how I can like someone so politically opposite me, yet I do! Chris Rock rocks 'em with this special!

Did Chris Rock make me laugh? - ah-hell yes!!! I never felt he ran out of material - he didn't dwell - he didn't rely on the "default" of sexual content to carry him. He just made me laugh. The fact that he always seems to have sharp insight into what he is talking about makes it all the more better. I loved it and I hope he comes out with more

NEVER SCARED (2004) is Chris Rock's fourth hilarious, thought-provoking HBO concert performance. Highly recommended for Rock fans and those who can accept racy language in pursuit of a good laugh, NEVER SCARED is more than funny. It's observational humor at its best, whipped up from a precise recipe of three parts cheek-aching laughs and one part disturbing reality.

Maybe not as great as "Bring the Pain" -- which will go down in history as one of the most successful comedy performances ever -- NEVER SCARED (2004) is nonetheless a great DVD that Rock fans will love.

Due to its adult content, obviously this DVD is not appropriate for young children -- and possibly not even your friends/relatives. But just when you wonder how many times Rock can throw a curse into a sentence, he offers viewers a universally true observation that cuts to the core of the realities of American popular culture and male-female relationships.

I agree with some viewers here who note the concert begins awkwardly. After viewing it a dozen times, I think Rock looks nervous as he struts onto the stage and immediately notes that the main responsibility of fathers is to keep their daughters off the stripper's pole. Though the bit has enormous potential, Rock looks too vulnerable to make it work as well as later jokes.

After discussing strippers and his increasingly reluctant love of rap music, Rock begins to look more comfortable and starts to hit his stride when he discusses the antics of Michael Jackson and his eccentric family, troubled R&B singer R. Kelly, magician David Blaine and Kobe Bryant.
