Black People " is the title of one of Chris Rock 's most famous and controversial stand-up comedy routines. This routine—which appeared both on his HBO special Bring the Pain and as track 12 on his album Roll with the New —is widely considered to be the breakthrough routine that established his status as a comedy fixture after he left Saturday Night Live. The routine is a twelve-minute monologue about behaviors that Rock sees in a subset of the country's blacks.
Trio television network is running documentaries on different facets of comedy all month long. It was a surprisingly interesting, thoughtful, and funny look at comedians who have pushed the boundaries of comedy It followed the medium from Amos and Andy to Lenny Bruce to Chris Rock to South Park. It was excellent. There are similair documentaries running all month long every night, but the one mentioned above was particularly good. Truth in comedy? One show that was discussed was All in the Family. Is it still shown in syndication? Look dammit, I am serious about how good it was!! I do not think I have ever watched a complete show on Trio either until tonight.
