Chris Rock’s latest special “Kill the Messenger” is coming up in an hour and a half on HBO (specifically 9PM EST). I haven’t seen it yet, it looks like it might be a little different than your standard comedy special, mixing in documentary footage to give insight into the art form of stand-up. Here’s a couple of clips from it.
The first has Chris talking about why he never headlined until he got on Saturday Night Live (with a guest appearance by good friend Mario Joyner).
And this clip has Chris talking after a show in Edinburgh about the difference between performing in a theater and a comedy club.
Update: Or maybe it doesn’t have any documentary stuff? We’ll see.
