Critic Reviews for Chris Rock: Tamborine
For all of Rock's fealty to hard fact and the disenchantments of experience, "Tamborine" is most exciting, and most unlike anything he's done before, when he gropes toward transformation.
[Rock's] willingness to derail the laughs shows a newfound vulnerability-all before he brings the act safely back to a funny zone.
Tamborine is more of a look at what can be rather than what is. Looking to the future isn't what we're used to, but there are few better masters of the form to help offer a way forward.
The energy is different, but Rock is still very funny and occasionally still provocative, if only because the culture has shifted in recent years.
Tamborine is rife with political humor and pointed observations on race in Rock's usual style, but the special is mostly about Rock himself, a self-reflective piece in which he owns up to his mistakes.
Tamborine never goes too dark, nor does Rock ever truly blur the line between stand-up set and therapy session...he never loses sight of the comedy - even as he distributes the hard-earned wisdom that comes from regret.
