    "Chris Rock is one of the best comics because he tells it like it is and doesn't shy away from offending the PC set. Funny and helps cut the political tension. Best of stand up, for sure. "

    "Terrible attempt at comedy. Not sure when comedy actually died but Chelsea certainly put a nail in it's coffin. Dumb humor, claiming to be dark. Runs like an unpopular girls diary. "

    "Provide a good detail of what the show is about. Enough details to capture it, but not overly too long where it spoils the experience."

    "Ridiculous and demeaning towards marriage. The woman is dominant and vulgar and the man is submissive and self bashing. Neither respects themselves or each other. This is a MUST AVOID special"
