DAR Constitution Hall hosts comedian Chris Rockís fourth stand-up
Iíve always enjoyed
Chris Rockís comedy. I loved his time on Saturday Night Live. I loved
his previous HBO specials. He is a great performer and his social
commentary and insights are always dead on. His current special,
Never Scared, is Rock doing his thing. It isnít his best special,
but it is still pretty funny. Rock tackles issues such as defending
rap, Michael Jackson, the war, and even the difference between being
rich and wealthy. While not his best work, Never Scared is
definitely a well done show.
The transfer is
standard. Everything looks crisp and clean and there no problems that
I can notice.
The audio mix is
standard as well. Rockís voice always rises above the audienceís
laughter and is never lost, even the few times when he speaks softly.

Ass Jokes Ė Chris Rockís first half hour special is a lot of fun
and, at some points, has more laughs than the feature.
Itís a nice concert
disc. Maybe not something to own, but a definite rental for fans of
