Chris Rock Rocks!

"Being one of the top standup comics in the world, Chris Rock has proven that he is not another Richard Pryor or Eddie Murphy when it comes to raunchy comedy. Unlike those latter comedians, Rock's appeal with urban and suburban America has made him a popular not only due to his previous work on Saturday Night Live, but due to his stint as host of his weekly cable television show, HBO's "The Chris Rock Show.""The Best of the Chris Rock Show, Volume 2" is another hysterical compilation of incredibly funny skits and jokes that Rock and other talented writers on his show have given television audiences in the past few years. Using fake recreations, commercial spoofs, and the talents of the ultra-funny Wanda Sykes, this collection will have you on the floor laughing. Some of the funniest skits on this DVD include "Selvina Delvina," featuring Wanda impersonating a possessive singer who only sings about her man and the "Make You Wait Hair Salon" where Wanda and Chris play the owners of a Harlem salon where waiting is a necessity and the service is slow. Another funny sketch is "Halle Berry 911" where Rock does a William Shatner-type role as host of a reality-based show (spoof of the show "Rescue 911"). The sketch which shows Berry as a menace to drivers was actually inspired by two automobile accidents she was involved in and ran away from the scene of the accident. I don't think the Oscar-winning actress will find this mockery of her driving skills amusing, but Rock sure does a hysterical job. The "Baby 1 Credit" and the comical driving safety sketch are also added bonuses on this DVD.This DVD, which comes with bonus material of Rock's version of HBO's "Taxicab Confessions" is also great, although most of the material on this disc is the same as Volume 1. Overall, this DVD is one of the best comedy DVDs to come out in a long time. It's much more funnier than his "Pootie Tang" movie and worth every cent. Born with a gift for comedy, Rock is definitely one Saturday Night Live Alum who hasn't lost his touch. This DVD is a must have for anyone into outrageous, mouth dropping comedy sketches. Highly Recommended!"
Better than CR Show Vol 1

"This is the funnier of the two volumes of CR Show material. This one includes the hilarious Baby One Credit sketch (e.g. "I bought me a fur house!"), and the "How not to get your *ss kicked by the Police" sketch... those two alone worth the entire price of the DVD.If you liked "Bigger and Blacker" or "Bring the Pain", you will love this!"
How many volumes and how much will we pay?

"People keep writing that these "Best of..." DVDs are incomplete and duplicate the same stuff on different DVDs. This Vol. 2 kind of demonstrates that this is true, in my opinion. We're being played (no pun intended), and if we want to have these skits to watch forever, we'll keep buying with high hopes we're not getting robbed. Shame on Lorne Michaels, et al. You surely have enough money by now that you can reward faithful SNL viewers with complete discs of new material on each separately-priced disc. Come on."
...Chris Rock Show, Priceless.

"If you think Chappelle's Show is funny and you haven't seen the Chris Rock Show, you are in for a treat. You telling me you haven't seen the ORIGINAL Pootie Tang interview? Hilarious. Chris Rock's comedy is some of the best. A lot of Chappelle's Show skits aren't as up to par as some of the stuff on here. Chris Rock is one of the greatest comedians alive. I love this show. I wish they would continue making more seasons of this show. I would also recommend the FDTV: Volume One DVD. It has a different style of comedy blends that Chris Rock and Chappelle's Show doesn't have. As far as this DVD goes, BUY SEASON 1 & SEASON 2 of the Chris Rock Show. This stuff is classic."
