Typical Chris Rock material: Anything goes. Mr. Rock says he doesn't like to hold back when it comes to joke writing, even if it means not always being politically correct. His own family can't even escape being the subjects of jokes. One of his more popular routines is about his mother always buying off-brand, generic, cheap food, especially peanut-butter with jelly already mixed in it. Mr. Rock says he always hated that stuff, comparing it to "buying a shoe with a sock already in it."Typical jokes: "Nothing's scarier than poor, white people.

NEW YORK -- At its best, theater transports audiences to different places and times. Musicals take this one step further by asking theatergoers to suspend their disbelief every time a character breaks into song. The top three competitors for best musical at tonight's Tony Awards ceremony are especially strong conveyances because of their connections to childhood. Subliminally, they take theater- goers back to more innocent days. They get away with magic because they draw on a time when playing make-believe is part of everyday life.

His campaign treasurer says he stands "head and shoulders above" the competition, but that's not the best joke you hear about diminutive new California gubernatorial candidate Gary Coleman (yes, that Gary Coleman, of "Whatchutalkin' bout, Willis?" fame). A better one is this: Even as he announced his own candidacy to replace recall-threatened Gov. Gray Davis, candidate Coleman (for the record, an independent) endorsed someone else: fellow actor and Republican rival Arnold Schwarzenegger!

GOING TO SAN ANTONIO For the second straight year, Kentucky comes into the tournament with a gaudy record, a No. 1 seed and no go-to player during crunch time. Balance is a tremendous attribute during the regular season, but March Madness is about superstars and heroic performances, as Kentucky found out last year when Marquettes Dwyane Wade ran the Wildcats off the court. Look for Georgia Tech, with athletic sophomore guard Jarrett Jack, to be the surprise of the tournament like Marquette was last season.

What happens when men and bears have to share the land? Find out on ABC tonight."Polar Bears: Arctic Terror" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Yeah, they look cute, but they can be pretty darn dangerous. Just ask the folks of Churchill, Manitoba, which has become the unofficial polar bear capital of the world. A large population of the critters spends its autumns there looking for food, and while that's great for the tourist industry, it's not always so wonderful for the townspeople. This latest "World of Discovery" special looks at the uneasy truce that has developed between human and bear and includes home video footage of a bear so taken by the smell of baking cupcakes that it practically destroyed a house in search of more.

WASHINGTON -- Political pundits don't have much to talk about during the dog days of summer when even the president of the United States goes on a month-long vacation, so lt's lucky for us Arnold Schwarzenegger is runnlng for governor in California. Now, news junkies can spend the rest of August watching their favorite talking heads debate whether the Terminator is a closet liberal, an anti-immigrant immigrant or if he has the proper gravitas to govern what most non-Californians regard as the wackiest state in the Union.
