HBO Home Entertainment presents the hottest stand-up comedy DVD of Christmas 2009 with the release of the eagerly anticipated CHRIS ROCK KILL THE MESSENGER on 16 November. This essential live comedy DVD will be topping everyones wish lists.

CHRIS ROCK KILL THE MESSENGER features the international superstar in a triumphant, all-new stand-up comedy event that cuts together footage from three different performances, at the Carling Apollo Hammersmith in London, South Africas Carnival City Casino and New Yorks legendary Apollo Theatre. Chris said of the comedy event I wanted to do the type of stand-up special that Ive never seen before.

If you were unlucky enough not to secure a ticket to his sold-out UK live shows last year now is your chance to catch the comedic genius of The funniest man in America and one of the top 100 most influential people in the world according to Time magazine. If you were one of the lucky ones to catch him live, youll want to relive that moment time and again on DVD.

Never afraid to say the unthinkable, Rock is brave and challenging but classy and laugh-out-loud hilarious. This innovative and fast paced show covers topical issues from Race; can a white person ever use the N Word? Why a black First Lady is more ground-breaking than a black President and the rules of the interracial posse. On Sex and Relationships; Chris states that its hard being a man, as no-one cares, he also answers the question of what women want, throwing in an uproariously scathing attack on Desperate Housewives and examines the many differences between men and women.

Other issues under the side-splitting microscope include Consumerism; how were now paying for things we used to get for free (water in a bottle?) and the complexities of the English Language; how bad words are not bad, its just the context in which theyre used, which Rock deftly demonstrates.

One of the most viewed personalities on YouTube, Rock recently set a Guinness World Record on The No Apologies Tour by playing to crowds of 15,900 at the O2, marking the largest audience for a stand-up comedy performance in British history. Chris performed on his last world tour to 554,781 people at 141 shows across 4 Continents and 8 Countries proving his international comedy credentials that transcend cultures.

The New York Times has described Rock as probably the funniest and smartest comedian working today, while The Washington Post championed him as a brilliant comic, a cheering presence, a humble star, noting that his comedy is full of intelligence, impudence and take-no-prisoners social comment.

CHRIS ROCK KILL THE MESSENGER follows three other HBO specials also on DVD, including 2004s Emmy®-nominated Never Scared, 2000s Emmy®-nominated Bigger & Blacker and the groundbreaking 1996 Emmy® winner Bring the Pain. His Emmy®-winning HBO late-night talk show The Chris Rock Show garnered critical raves and is also available on DVD.

The multitalented Rock has won three Emmys® and three Grammys, and recently starred on the big screen in I Think I Love My Wife, as well as contributing his voice to the animated hits Bee Movie and Madagascar. In 2005, Rock created and narrated the critically acclaimed series Everybody Hates Chris, based on his childhood experiences.

Chris Rock burst onto the scene in 1989, spending three years as a cast member of Saturday Night Live. He has starred in the films Head of State, which marked his directorial debut, The Longest Yard, Bad Company, with Anthony Hopkins, Down to Earth, Nurse Betty, with Morgan Freeman, Dogma, directed by Kevin Smith, Boomerang, and New Jack City. In addition, his 1997 book Rock This was a New York Times best seller.

Legendary producer-director Marty Callners previous credits include comedy specials starring Dane Cook, Jerry Seinfeld, Robin Williams, George Carlin and Whoopi Goldberg as well as live shows for Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Cher.
