Chris Rock's first Netflix stand-up comedy special is nearly here

In his first standup routine in 10 years, Chris Rock talked about the ups and downs of love, making Valentine's Day a fitting release date for his special, Tambourine.

The Chris Rock of 2018 has gone through some changes, and he uses Tamborine as a medium for atonement.

Tamborine is the first comedy special from the comedian since 2008 and it's now available on Netflix. "With his trademark laser-like observations, Rock covers the gamut of contemporary issues, with incisive and insightful commentary on life", Netflix said in its own release announcing the new special.

The special, which premiered Wednesday, opens with Rock's candid views on police brutality against African Americans. You don't wanna get divorced.

Tamborine is the first of two specials the comic has committed to for Netflix. She is never the same again.

He says: 'It's my fault, because I'm a f*****g asshole. "I brought this shit on myself, and you've got to learn some lessons-some man lessons". I thought, "I pay for everything, I can do what I want". "Then you know what happens? I didn't listen. I wasn't kind". "I just thought I was the s**t..." You develop sexual autism.

'You have a hard time with eye contact and verbal cues ...

"When you start watching porn, any porn'll do".

An "equal world", Rock says would be one where white mothers are mourning their children "standing next to Al Sharpton". I'd go on the road, end up sleeping with three different women.
