Bring back the pain

Everybody hates ChrisNew Rule: Chris Rock can never EVER be booked as a guest on Real Time With Bill Maher again. I was hella psyched when I checked the show schedule and saw that he would finally be on the roundtable panel for the midseason premiere. It turned out to be like sitting through the Super Bowl, the appearance was all hype, no substance. Instead of chiming in with actual relevant commentary, all this bucktoothed bastard could do was turn into a shrill sycophant complaining about gas prices.

Say what?! The man who made so much sense breaking down the myopic viewpoints of blue state vs. red state thinking during Never Scared? The comic who actually had something a bit deeper to contribute to Comedy Central's political coverage during the presidential campaign push of 1996?

Seriously, who laced his Kool-Aid with that bad heroin? The whole episode bombed worse than a Bad Company/Head Of State double feature.

Chris was very disappointing. Give me Aaron McGruder over this guy anyday. You would think a guy who's comedy bit includes several stabs at sociopolitical commentary would have a field day on a show like Real Time. Here's a tip for you, Chris: The rising cost in gas isn't that funny.

I think we need to start a petition to bring Aaron back...the way Chris dropped the ball really pissed me off. Had a whole hour-long platform to really expound on not only being funny, but showing off some awareness on topics he's well acquainted with. But nope....we got stuck with, "hey, you know gas is really fuckin' expensive?!" No shit, Sherlock. NEXT.

At least I know I'm not alone... You wanna get together one late night, creep up on this fool's crib, throw a burlap sack over his head and beat the damn heart and style back into the brother? I'm down if you are!

I'm with it...Pookie done lost his edge and needs his dome rattled a couple times for the hood sensibility to come back.

Yeah Chris was a little off, granted he went on a bit too much about the rising gas prices, still thought the highlight was when Bill slipped in the your kids are all gay remark under the cuff to the Queen of England (clone)....lol

That was a sly dig Bill got in...I got the biggest laugh at Phyllis Schlafly literally losing her wig at having her gay son card pulled. "Oh come on, Bill!" Heh. Classic shit.

i was thinking chris didn't get his prep packet, got his prep packet but didn't have time to read it, or just didn't give a fuck. either way i was embarrassed for him. I watched the show again just to make sure. Yup. Still embarrassing.

oh - and aaron mcgruder rocks.

I know I am late but I just saw it today.

I think they told him to pipe down. I thought he had his own HBO special coming out?

Also, the chick next to him was a mental midget. Chris could not even go there.
