Critic Reviews for Chris Rock: Tamborine

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (8)

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.

Top Critic

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.

[Tamborine] sees Rock addressing his self-selected smaller audience with both less volume and more intimacy.

February 14, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

He has honed this material, beefing up jokes and cutting out fat, and his comedy has become tighter, funnier if also slicker, shifting from a story of a comic struggling with demons to one describing how he once was lost and now he's found.
