Funny If A Little Bit Crude

  • Feb 12, 2005
Born Suspect is a hillarious comedy gig featuring Chris Rock at an Atlanta Night Club. Many of Chris' subject matter has aracey tone to it so if you don't like crude humor you may have some issues with this performance. Nonetheless, there are many funny routines ranging from the weaves to McDonalds to the Crack Mayor Barry and much more.

Even the two rap tracks are pretty amusing and cool. Chris uses some foul language here and there but it does not approach Eddie Murphy's extreme X rated level. Chris uses his voice to emphasize different points particuarly with the Crack Mayor track.

Overall this CD will appeal to most audiences black, white, or other ethnicity. Try to overlook the crude moments as there is some good humor here.

About this topic


A chunk of raw Rock, before he hit the big time withSaturday Night Live, HBO, and everything else. This CD was recorded at a 1991 gig in Atlanta, and while it lacks the polish and daring of his later hitRoll with the New, it has plenty of laughs to satisfy his fans.Born Suspecthas some nice Rock riffs on his life back then: "Minimum wagemeans that we would pay you less if we could, but it's against the law!" and "Don't you hate it when your boss asks you 'How ya doin'?' You know exactly how I'm doin'--bad!" Plus, he makes fine fun of Washington, D.C., mayor Marion Barry: "Now you can't tell your kids, 'Don't smoke crack, or else you won't be nothin'.... 'Well, I could bemayor." Though onBorn SuspectRock is unpolished, a little self-indulgent, and not as razor-sharp as he later became, the disc is nevertheless worth a listen, if only to get a glimpse of this great talent.--Michael Gerber
