Although he is often yelling, it isn't a crutch he relies on like other comedians.

Chris Rock is a true comedian, worthy of the attention he has recieved.

Chris Rock is a serious comic: his comedy is based on hitting power structure and established institutions from political parties to marriage. At any given performance you might think he's going too far or "he can't possibly be saying that...", etc. but in the end you will have laughed so hard it won't matter.
