    “If George Clooney showed up with a lime green tux on and a swan coming out of his ass, someone would ask him, ‘whatcha wearing, George?’” I DIED!!! 😂😂😂

    Joseph O'Brien- uhmm, let me see: they get it in the nfl, nba, and music awards. 13% doesn't matter then. What's good should get what it deserves. I'm sure in the 100 years of cinema some black people deserved some awards somewhere they never got.

    You’d have a lot more likes but Lady Gaga fans did not appreciate that joke. Chris Rock is a legend! It’s just I’ll always seem him as that skinny crackhead in New Jack City. Top 5 comic of all time.

    ‘Lose another job to Kevin Hart’ ... two years later Kev loses his job as a Oscar host. This aged well

    +muya hayes how is that racism? they dig into everyone's past now and I see that on the news at least once a week or so (it seems to be mainly men - of all skin colors - after all, we are stupid when young) People call everything racism nowadays (maybe not you, I dont want to assume) Even if someone does something negative to a black person, it still isn't racism unless you did it because they were black (or performed a hate crime). Like if a drunk white guy punches a random black guy because he tho...

    Identity politics ate itself

    Can you imagine how good Paul Giomatti must have felt? Man’s done every type of character possible!

  • Alex Obed (Feb 7, 2019)

    My fav was when he tagged Leo. Def lowkey, but it really wasn't about Leo.

    8:30"We need the same opportunities"(Camera focuses on Chadwick)2 years later we get The Black Panther grossing over a billion dollars at the box office T'challa took Your Words to heart Chris Rock 👍👍👍

    “How come it’s always unemployed people who tell you to quit something, huh” 😂😂😂😂😂, Chris Rock has had the best opening by far

  • CreeNative 306 (Jan 13, 2019)

    He always does lol check out when he hosted the mtv awards in 03 i think it was, he was so funny in the opening

  • Dubbzvs Paul (Jan 12, 2019)

    That is so true...I had several unemployed ppl tell me to quit my job

  • Godson Eh (May 8, 2016)

    Intelligent comedy!!! Chris is all time the best.

  • taxsi (Oct 9, 2018)

    This is a masterpiece beyond the comedy field. I don't know how to explain this genius of "We like you, Ronda, but you're not a Kappa"...

  • David Conway (Feb 15, 2019)

    +taxsi they don't exclude African-Americans or minorities at all lol what are you talking about. It's just a bunch of guys that hang out a lot and do philanthropy and throw parties. Anyone can rush a frat and get in, they aren't excluding anyone. I'm pretty sure most minorities just don't want to join one

  • jotainfilms (Jan 29, 2019)

    +Paul Kim same here

  • Scott Dawson (Jan 5, 2019)

    crowd getting so uncomfortable good on you chris!

  • Jermanos Petalos (Jan 13, 2019)

    they gave the biggest laugh for blacks getting shot, but not for the kapa joke. Shows how whites and Jews think. Denzel spoke about it, look it up.

  • Andrea Mendenhall (Jan 12, 2019)

    Scott Dawson blacks are represented at about 13% which is their amount of American demographic. Latinos are only represented at 5% while being 15% of the US demographic.

  • Nate McGraw (Jan 9, 2019)

    How ironic Kevin Hart's going through this right now and Chris Rock was talking about him hosting ....what a world

  • Just Your Average Joe (Jan 12, 2019)

    But he’s not hosting lmao

  • Angel Messtanoffski (Dec 10, 2018)

    Chris Rock attacking racism with what he does best: Humor!

  • Sorry I had to (Feb 4, 2019)

    +soyboy the majorities of my friends r whites, my girlfriend is whites do u think if there is a race war I will let my fellow blacks kill them ? I don't think so, if I was that bad they won't be close to my world. So yeah I am not racist as you would like to think

  • soyboy (Feb 4, 2019)

    +Sorry I had to do you ever take the side of white people? If you would be a reasonable black person and a white person was being racist towards you, I would absolutely pick your side in the argument. Believe me that's not a lie.
