    Everybody Hates Chris is an American sitcom inspired by the teenage experiences of comedian Chris Rock (who is also the narrator), while growing up in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York (often referred to in the show as Bed-Stuy) from 1982 to 1987. Chris Rock grew up with a boy named Kenny Montero who he has often referred to as the inspiration for a lot of the episodes. In many interviews, Rock has described Kenny as the reason he got into comedy in the first place. The title of the show parodies the CBS sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond. Rock stated "Everybody Loves Raymond but Everybody Hates Chris!". The show's lead actors are Tyler James Williams, Terry Crews, Tichina Arnold, Tequan Richmond, Imani Hakim, and Vincent Martella.

Mr. White. The bus scene, the banker just giving him money... classic.

    If you are funny you can pretty much do whatever you want. You just have to be funny. That's why Carlos Mencia sucks and Michael Richards blew up. Plenty of people talk about race and make it hilarious (like Bill Burr), but some comedians are just hacks.

    Carlos Mencia is funny, I know plenty of people think he's not but I do. The only comedian I've seriously thought was unfunny was Dane Cook.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    See, you clearly don't watch much stand-up comedy. He is a good actor that can make everyone laugh, but since he uses everyone else's jokes that kind of makes him not all that funny. That's South Park picked on him for stealing jokes during the Fish Sticks episode and that's why this youtube video of Joe Rogan going on stage during one of his bits exists:



    I mean did you hear him, "Do you really think a Jew wrote that joke?"

    Hellz no, on the poll question. I object to Black comedians doing that, big time. Hellz no, Dog. Hellz no. I might agree, the day White comedians can smash on Blacks for comedy purposes. Ha, ha.

    I've seen this. I don't think Carlos Mencia is unfunny because he stole jokes. What's the best thing Joe Rogan has done for comedy?

    Missed those, thanks. They don't in TV or in the Movies though, at least I have not seen it. I know that Chelsea makes fun of midgets though!
