Chris Rock tackles stand up comedy like its a full-contact sport. He paces the stage like hes ready to box, but the only punches he throws are verbal knockouts. And after caging his irrepressible comedic energies into neat and adorable big-screen packages the dude in I Think I Love My Wife is a mere fraction of the funny that Chris Rock actually is we know hes ready to come out swinging tonight at the Seminole Hard Rock (One Seminole Way, Hollywood).
Rocks about to roll out another HBO special his fifth and heaven knows, between Britney Spears and the ongoing election season, hes got more than enough new material. And from all reports, hes keeping his claws sharp on his current six-month tour. Britney Spears, boy. Even OJ kept his kids, and he killed their mother, hes quoted as saying on stage at Madison Square Garden this year. If youre worried Rock (who outed himself as a Barack Obama supporter on Saturday Night Live recently) might go after your candidate of choice, wear a cup and come prepared to laugh regardless, while Rock brings the pain.
