Chris Rock is sharing his thoughts on his comedian pals who have recently been in the news.
The 56-year-old Spiral: From the Book of Saw actor appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday, May 13. During their chat, Jimmy Kimmel brought up the fact that Chris had recently been performing live comedy at clubs in New York City, including at the Comedy Cellar, the popular Greenwich Village venue.
"I did a couple of things with Dave," Chris continued. "I was with Mulaney last night—I opened for him last night."
Jimmy asked how the show with John went, and the Saturday Night Live alum replied, "That went really good! It was really good."
The host pointed out that the show would "be a lot of fun to see," and was curious whether comedy fans have been packing into venues in the same way they would have before the coronavirus pandemic.
"People are showing up," Chris shared. He then quipped, "Every now and then, somebody dies. But we keep the show going."
John has been making headlines lately as he marked his first live performances of 2021 with a string of sold-out shows this week at the City Winery in NYC. This followed the 38-year-old Big Mouth voice actor having entered a rehab facility in December 2020 to address addiction issues, according to media reports.
"I know! That's what those masks do," the comedian replied. "They don't know who it was. They thought it was Rob Schneider."
