Here’s the Thing: Chris Rock

Chris Rock says he “wanted [his] acting to grow.” So what did he do? He took a job on Broadway. Alec goes backstage with Rock after a matinee of The Mother F**ker With The Hat to hear about what it was like for Rock to be in his first play. Rock says rehearsal was the hardest thing he’s ever gone through in his life.

Chris Rock and Alec talk about the play, the movie business and Rock’s career in stand-up.

Alec asks Rock about how the people in his life respond to his stand-up — which as Alec says, can “filet them on stage.” “I’m like a lawyer,” says Rock; “it would all hold up in court.” That said, he admits that everybody is uncomfortable.
