Chris Rock Gets Praised for His Broadway Debut, The Motherfucker with the Hat

Reviews are coming in for Chris Rock's Broadway debut, The Motherfucker with the Hat, and they look to be pretty positive. Ben Brantley over at the New York Times had this to say about Rock's performance in his review: "For much of the play the power belongs to Ralph, who wields phrases like 'the cycle of self-sabotage' in the style of a pistol-twirling gunslinger. As a professional stand-up seducer (which even insult comics have to be), Mr. Rock fits the part effortlessly." There's a lot of comedy star power on Broadway right now, albeit involved in very disparate things. From Trey Parker and Matt Stone's The Book of Mormon to Robin Williams in Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo to The Motherfucker with the Hat, you really have no excuse to get dragged to Mamma Mia with your folks.
