Chris Rock: How Not To Get Your Ass Kicked By The Cops
Chris Rock is one of our favorites and tonight's Midnight Movie is somewhat topical. We don't know why the cops beat down that gang guy the other day, but it happened and we wonder if bro broke any of Chris's rules.
Next week in Las Vegas Rock will be honored at Caesar's for his lifetime of comedy. Chris will be getting "The Comedian Award" Friday at 10pm.
This 60-minute show will feature a Q&A with Chris and friends, clips from his stand-up, television and movie career and a special award presentation by HBO Chairman & CEO, Chris Albrecht.
Maybe now that he is going through a divorce he might resurrect his HBO show that this was taken from.
