First coming to the attention of the American masses as a mid-1990s “Saturday Night Live” regular, Chris Rock later skyrocketed to the status of A-list, million-dollar-salary celebrity with high-profile movie roles and a regular show on HBO.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Although Richard Pryor is IMO the G.O.A.T. comedian, even he didn't have a single special that was as great as "Bring The Pain", which I feel is about as perfect as stand-up comedy gets (with nary a single slow moment throughout its stacked duration). Far superior to Rock's vastly overrated (yet widely more popular) Bigger and Blacker special. "Niggaz vs. Black People" is beyond legendary. http://youtu.be/f3PJF0YE-x4
