Be warned: This often-revolting comedy special, replete with bathroom humor, is not for the faint of funny bone. Many of the jokes here would make Buddy Hackett and Redd Foxx blush. (Note: The F-word, in various forms, is uttered 106 times in 90 minutes.) But the 12 relative unknowns (including a naughty, X-rated ventriloquist act called Otto & George) who share the spotlight are also often very funny. The standout is Chris Rock, an Eddie Murphy protégé, who does bits on racism, Aunt Jemima and porn magazines.
