Before we pass along all of the information that you'll need to know (including intel on the pre-show & post-show), Netflix & Rock have put together a mini-documentary highlighting (with images) what Rock's past year has been like while he's been on tour – including appearances from Dave Chappelle, Adam Sandler, Kevin Hart, and others.
