Get ready to pair your chocolate and wine this year with some Chris Rock. Surprise! His first comedy special in ten years arrives on Netflix on Valentine’s Day. Chris Rock: Tamborine is the first of two specials with the service; it’s reportedly worth so many millions that both Amy Schumer and Mo’Nique have cited his salary to get a raise from Netflix. Tamborine, directed by Bo Burnham, was taped at BAM in New York, likely in front of a majority-black audience if Rock got his wish. Now good luck convincing your valentine that, for once, you mean no funny business when you suggest Netflix and chill.
