I've never found him funny, including when he was on SNL. He's one of the worst comedic actors I've ever seen.

There, I said it.

i will agree with you assuming we are excluding stand up acts. also "everybody hates chris" looked entertaining from the two times i saw it.

Okay, so, like, the joke in these rap battle parodies is everybody's reactions to this guy's disses when they make no sense at all?

Is that it?

Chris Rock = Sinbad - 50lbs

IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE I'M YELLING!!!

Any comment from SNL?

Yeah, his stand up has always been pretty solid. And the HBO thing with him, Louis CK, Jerry Seinfeld and Ricky Gervais was really interesting.

Chris Rock's How Not To Get Arrested

Everybody Hates Chris was one of the funniest, smartest, underrated sitcoms of recent times. Sort of like a Wonder Years meets Good Times in the 80s.

Those two clips make me feel like I'm missing a lot of inside jokes.
Am I too white?

Say what you will about Chris Rock, but if it wasn't for him Louis CK would never have made his magnum opus, Pootie Tang.

You can never be too white. Maybe if you're Obama, but the rest of us are safe.

I thought he was pretty good in Dogma...

Chris Rock has ascended the Hollywood system and no longer has to be in front of the cameras. Now he gets a share of other people's work without having to try to be funny. And at 47 it was about time for him to move up to executive producer status or become a d-list celebrity tasting food on Iron Chef.

Except that beneath the shtick the comedy itself is pretty intelligent. Not high brow, but not lowest common denominator. His social commentary is spot on.

Definitely was a decent little show.

I loved his first two cds. Hilarious stuff.
 
2012-07-27 04:23:36 AM
I feel like I lost IQ points by simply watching those awful videos.

So, that said, this show's going to last 10 seasons at least.
 
2012-07-27 04:42:12 AM
He might suck in movies but he's one of the best stand up comedians of all time.
 
2012-07-27 05:02:50 AM
I like him better when he does those movies with Jackie Chan.
 
2012-07-27 06:25:54 AM
Richard Pryor was funnier even when he was smoking crack. There I said it.

Drunken Master? I thought he died? some say it was natural causes but i know it was a ninja attack.

"Why 1:35 AM? 'Cause the Man would never give me a prime time slot!"

Need to RTA and find out if the show is only 15 minutes long.

There, I fixed it for you.

I met Chris Rock in Savannah on River Street. He's actually kind of short and has giant head.

/Everybody Hates Chris cracks me up. That red headed kid is a total prick
 
2012-07-27 07:32:56 AM
I like Everybody Hates Chris, because the main family characters reminded me of people I actually knew. However, I guess I miss most of his other jokes. WHY DO PEOPLE THINK THINGS GET FUNNIER IF YOU YELL? I never really understood that.
 
2012-07-27 07:49:19 AM
DVR and/or .torrent = time slot doesn't matter.
 
2012-07-27 08:12:59 AM
Wouldn't 1:35 make it part of The Secret Stash, and thus uncensored? point for the show, if so

Everybody Hates Chris had some of the funniest cut away gags in the history of TV. The writers of Family Guy need to watch some episodes to see how to do a proper cut away.

I'm surprised it took this long for a Nat X reference.

Chris Rock was the best part of "New Jack City".

Also, I'll take Chris Rock over Martin Mull any day of the week

Wow.

Hopefully the show is better than the videos in TFA, because I've seen funnier shiat in my baby's diaper...and I actually like hip-hop and urban humor. That was farking RETARDED (no offense to actual retarded people).
 
2012-07-27 01:34:34 PM
1:35 AM? Try 1:28 AM. Have you seen the times that shows start on Comedy Central now? It's all messed up.
 
2012-07-27 02:12:58 PM
Chris Rock is getting Dave Chappelle's sloppy seconds, huh? Fantastic.

/Comedy Central blows
 
2012-07-27 05:23:25 PM
Chris Rock is funny because he's black and says things that black people can relate to in a way that white people (aka "Honkeys") are shocked yet amused. Very edgy, he is.

/yes, I'm drunk already
 
2012-07-27 09:39:52 PM
Oh joy, more "You know why white people *insert this* so much" television. Just what we need.
