Great for collectors

If you’re a collector of comedy like me, this is a must-have item. Chris Rock is one of the best so having his catalogue is essential. Additionally, I think this is his second best (after Bigger and Blacker, of course). The additional discs contain the independent performances from each location, which I enjoyed because there were a few jokes that were cut out due to the nature of the final product.
Bottom line: if you’re a Chris Rock fan, get this. If you’re a stand-up comedy collector, get this. If you’re just a casual consumer of stand-up and just want something to entertain you for a nice night in, get the regular version, it’s cheaper and still hilarious.
