HBO Home Entertainment presents the hottest stand-up comedy DVD of Christmas 2009 with the release of the eagerly anticipated CHRIS ROCK: KILL THE MESSENGER on 16 November. This essential live comedy DVD will be topping everyone’s wish lists. To celebrate the release, we are giving away 5 copies on DVD.

CHRIS ROCK: KILL THE MESSENGER features the international superstar in a triumphant, all-new stand-up comedy event that cuts together footage from three different performances, at the Carling Apollo Hammersmith in London, South Africa’s Carnival City Casino and New York’s legendary Apollo Theatre. Chris said of the comedy event “I wanted to do the type of stand-up special that I’ve never seen before”.

If you were unlucky enough not to secure a ticket to his sold-out UK live shows last year now is your chance to catch the comedic genius of ‘The funniest man in America’ and one of the ‘top 100 most influential people in the world’ according to Time magazine. If you were one of the lucky ones to catch him live, you’ll want to relive that moment time and again on DVD.

Never afraid to say the unthinkable, Rock is brave and challenging but classy and laugh-out-loud hilarious. This innovative and fast paced show covers topical issues from Race; can a white person ever use the ‘N’ Word? Why a black First Lady is more ground-breaking than a black President and the rules of the interracial posse. On Sex and Relationships; Chris states that it’s hard being a man, as no-one cares, he also answers the question of what women want, throwing in an uproariously scathing attack on Desperate Housewives and examines the many differences between men and women.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the following question:
