Kill The Editor
The editor of this special was so consumed with splicing footage and seamlessly meshing shows that he or she, in my opinion, got in the way of the act.
Chris Rock deserves a special focused on Chris Rock the way George Carlin's specials focused only on George Carlin.
This special had too much going on. The editing tangled feet with the punchlines. The outfit changes were jarring, as I found myself missing the jokes because I was too busy saying, "Now he's wearing a shiny jacket," or, "Now he's in Brooklyn." Not to mention the sound quality was noticeably different, especially when jokes were spliced together.
It was all just so unnecessary.
I would like to see Kill The Message from one stage, with one audience. But don't take my word for it. Watch it yourself.
