SYNOPSIS

 

Washington D.C.ís DAR Constitution Hall hosts comedian Chris Rockís fourth stand-up special.

 

CRITIQUE

 

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 VIDEO

 

The transfer is standard. Everything looks crisp and clean and there no problems that I can notice.

 

THE AUDIO

 

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.

 

THE EXTRAS

 

Chris Rock: Big Ass Jokes Ė Chris Rockís first half hour special is a lot of fun and, at some points, has more laughs than the feature.

 

OVERALL

 

Itís a nice concert disc. Maybe not something to own, but a definite rental for fans of Rock.

 

VERDICT: RECOMMENDED
