Critic Reviews for Chris Rock: Tamborine

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (23)

  • 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.

    December 27, 2018 | Full Review…
  • [Rock's] willingness to derail the laughs shows a newfound vulnerability-all before he brings the act safely back to a funny zone.

    November 20, 2018 | Full Review…
  • There's pain in the jokes and it's gripping watching a man bare his soul on stage; a marked step up from the first half of Tamborine that doesn't seem to really have one.

    February 14, 2018 | Full Review…
  • 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.
