Great comedian, but no Chris Rock.
I bought the DVD without having seen any bits or shows of Jamie Foxx, and I was really surprised. After seeing Collateral and Any Given Sunday, I couldn't imagine this guy was a comedian. As it turns out, I was wrong.
Jamie Foxx uses a lot of the standard issues (relationships, black people vs. white people, drugs, etc) in his show, but he also uses his previous films. He's gonna tell you about his "fight" with LL Cool J during 'Any Given Sunday', and he'll tell you stories about his trip to Africa during the filming of 'Ali'. I've seen quite some recent stand-up shows, and in all of them Michael Jackson is a huge topic. I was so relieved that Jamie Foxx only used his name in one sentence. Instead of going after Michael, he went after Prince for a change.
The show is a must-see for fans of Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock. Just don't expect the same high quality you get from those guys.
