such an odd almost random sounding title but he brought it home and that was my favorite bit. it was honest and introspective on top of being funny.

i thought he was at the Nipsey Russell Hollywood squares of his career.

that jive turkey is overrated and not that funny. and those cheap shots against Michael jackson are a lifetime offense.

that turkey right now is Kevin hart's caddy.

That was me in my 20’s. When he said “I was 15 minutes late to everything” I almost died. I ain’t laughed that hard in years.

Rock is a living legend. And so it was cool to see him in a somewhat more intimate setting than his other specials.

Loved the camera work with the close-ups during the more poignant segments. Really got the pathos of it across.

10/10.

I thought it was great. Relatable, especially as a parent and his social commentary is very timely.

He is very smart and his personal discussions were intriguing.

Well done Chris.

I really enjoyed it a lot. Many people comparing it to Dave, but you can't. Dave is a better comedian, but I find myself wanting to revisit this one more.

Not sure if that makes sense but that’s the way I see it.

Dave is Mike Tyson, just raw and talented as hell.

Rock is Floyd Mayweather. Technician who really has the standup craft down to a science

Dave is more than just heavy punches but dude is/was the greatest and pretty much won you over as soon as he entered the ring.

But his jokes aren’t haymakers.. he can dance around the ring with his stories and drag out a joke in glorious fashion.

I really wish I could’ve seen Rock and Dave together

Remember this post, that ended after the NYTimes swipe was posted (the New Orleans and Detroit swipes didn't seem to impress for some reason)?

Porn is so easy to access now.

The 15 minutes late to everything was hilarious.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

There's an extra 40 minutes of jokes added, but more interestingly he took the director credit from Bo Burnham and completely re-edited it so it looks more like a standard special - wide shots, crowd reactions, all that. It also shows that Burnham really did edit the special like a actual film at times and changed the way Rock's jokes were told.

There's more crowd work, the punch lines are emphasized a little more (like apparently, "no justice, no quiche" was the punchline to "justice for Chad"), and some of the jokes are a little sloppier. There's a whole riff about what modern Jim Crow Laws are and how he uses the color white in his house to prepare his kids for the real world that was cut out and might be some of the best jokes in the set! And the gun violence jokes make a lot more sense in the context of the set surrounded by four other minutes on gun violence.


Total Blackout is a really interesting flex and it's cool Netflix has 'em both 'cause if you want the real good Rock solos they're all over this extended cut but if you just want the melodies Tamborine is still a really good time. I don't even know if I have a preference - Total Blackout feels like a comedy set and Tamborine feels like a statement, and I kind of agree with the post above that said Rock is more of a technician. I might lean toward this new one just because giving the money shots more time to build up helps them land a little harder, and all the jabs leading up are sometimes just as funny or funnier.
