5.0 out of 5 stars Best stand up I've ever watched, August 9, 2005
This review is from: Chris Rock - Never Scared (DVD)
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. Also, the people out there who are offended by his race jokes, when he's talking about white people, you guys need to chill out. Do you actually think that he's going to stand up there and put down white people, when he knows that he has fans that are white? get real. He's just speaking the truth about certain things, maybe the people who don't like what he's saying about how there still is racisim out there, are afraid to hear it. Alot of us have a little bit of prejudice in us, and Chris Rock just tells it like it is. Overall, I really liked this stand up of his, and I recommend wathching it. Two thumbs up!
