Most comedians wouldn’t touch sensitive topics like the tragedies of 9/11 and the Boston Marathon bombing or explosive issues such as gun control with a 10-foot pole.
But Chris Rock isn’t most comedians. He tackled all those topics and more in his opening monologue on Saturday Night Live last night, starting with terrorism and ending with Jesus, riffing on the commercialization of Christmas.
What did you think of the monologue? Was it funny and spot on, or pushing comedy too far?
