WTF. Chris Rock wants people to enjoy the show the way he thinks they should......

Rock said he was sick of people uploading clips of his performances to social media instead of focusing on enjoying the show.
What a belle-end.

At least say that he doesn't want people to pirate the show..... Anyway.... In an era when standups make sooooooooo much money why are they bothered about being uploaded to Youtube?

The funniest one recently was the big Snapchat party: https://news.sky.com/story/snapchat-banned-new-years-eve-party-guests-from-taking-photos-11195243 ... kind of defeats the purpose of the app...

Maybe he's more worried about others seeing how crap his show is so they don't bother to book and go.

Though I agree it's annoying when many of the crowd are too busy with their phones in the air capturing the performance to actually watch the performance. The modern equivalent to blocking others view with your brolly.

Shame those signal blockers you can (illegally :eyes) use on the tube don't extend to blocking the camera too. :devil

Like it. The old school rockers just turn up their wall of Marshalls so the sound wave destroys all the camera phones at the same time as the crowd's hearing. No need for an emp with an amp. :smokin
