Linking to some Chris Rock
Chris Rock is my favorite American born stand-up comic right now. Given that the top of stand-up list - George Carlin, Rodney Dangerfield and Richard Pryor - are all off the stage for good, I'd put him very close to the top of all living stand-ups. He and Eddie Izzard are at about the same level. If these guys both bring their A-game, I'd have a hard time choosing between them.
Here's a link to some of his material from last New Year's Eve at Madison Square Garden. It's all political, and it's all gold. I have his line about Obama as my new .sig, raising the cussing level of my blog for the time being.
Preach on, Chris. Some of us crackers actually don't hate you.
