An extended version of the Chris Rock special Tamborine drops Tuesday on Netflix.
On Tuesday, Netflix will release Chris Rock: Total Blackout, The Tamborine. The special is an extended cut of Rock’s 2018 stand-up special. Along with the new on-stage material, the new Tamborine features backstage footage with comedic legends like Dave Chappelle and Arsenio Hall. In one clip, the two discuss how different the stand-up game is from decades past, leading to a fascinating story about prior tensions among the ranks.
After giving each other praise for their material, Arsenio remarks that he would’ve loved to see this sort of camaraderie decades ago. He reveals a story that encapsulates the tension between Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor, comparing it to tension between Prince and Michael Jackson during their careers. Watch the full video below.
