'In the Flow with Affion Crockett' Puts Rush Limbaugh and Chris Rock Together (VIDEO)

'Rush Limbaugh' and 'Chris Rock,' 'In the Flow with Affion Crockett''In the Flow with Affion Crockett' (Sun., 9:30PM ET on FOX) has been a real mixed bag, and it hasn't found much audience support. That said, though, Crockett does have some pretty spot-on impressions, and there are funny bits to be found on the show. We were particularly impressed with his take on Chris Rock.

Crockett matched both his unique voice and cadence, as well as his body tics perfectly. It made for an awkward sketch with the show's impression of Rush Limbaugh, because it just wasn't nearly as good.

'Louie' Wraps Season on a Positive, Delusional Note, With Some Help From Chris Rock (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 9th 2011 5:40AM
'Louie' - 'New Jersey / Airport''Louie' (Thu., 10:30PM ET on FX) wrapped Season 2 with one of the most brilliantly unique scenes I've ever seen on any kind of television show. Honestly, the only way to describe that moment is that it's so ... 'Louie.'


The show sticks with its two-vignettes format for this episode, but the halves work well together, pushing the character of Louis C.K. reluctantly toward a genuine adulthood. The first half was incredibly awkward and uncomfortable, as Louis succumbed to his weakness and yearnings by agreeing to get in the car with a strange woman.

Chris Rock Didn't Think 'The Motherf***er With the Hat' Would Make It on Broadway (VIDEO)

Bobby Cannavale and Chris Rock on 'The View'Bobby Cannavale's performance in 'The Motherf***er With the Hat' earned him a Tony Award for Best Actor. Tuesday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), Cannavale and his co-star Chris Rock talked about the show's humble beginnings, and Rock's initial doubts that the show would have a significant run.

"Early on, people weren't showing up," said Rock. "They couldn't advertise the name and all that stuff, and we thought we were going to close in April." Cannavale said Rock had predicted on opening night that, "We're probably not going to be here tomorrow."

The show did find its footing, in part because of the cast-member's energy. How do they get up for a performance? "Crack," joked Rock. Cannavale gave more credit to the cast's chemistry and their pre-show routine.

Chris Rock on Cursing in Front of His Parents (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Apr 22nd 2010 12:30PM
Fans of Chris Rock know the actor/comedian has no problem working blue. And yet, Rock keeps his potty mouth in check in front of his parents, he said on 'The Rachael Ray Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

Rock said he never uses profanity around his mother or father because they never cursed at home. Still, if his parents happen to be in the audience while he's performing stand-up, they should expect a blue streak like everyone else. Said Rock, "When they're in an audience, yeah, well. How else is their mortgage going to get paid?"

Chris Rock on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'The different ways we honor those who've passed away can't be explained culturally or racially -- it's down to economics. That's what Chris Rock explained to Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC). "Black funerals and white funerals are pretty much the same. [But] rich people get buried a day, two days after they die because the money's there," said Rock. What if you're not rich?

Regis Philbin better watch out, because it seems that Chris Rock may have his eye on Philbin's job as the co-host of 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated).

While discussing Rock's decision to end 'The Chris Rock Show,' which ran from 1997 to 2000, Philbin jokingly wonders aloud whether it's time to end his own talk show career. Rock then kids Philbin that he sees an opportunity in this.

Chris Rock has a Merry Madagascar with the family

Chris Rock Merry MadagascarChris Rock has the kind of status as a comedian that allows him to work on any project he wants. He produced the documentary Good Hair, he's writing a book, and he has been working on back-to-back film shoots.

Tuesday at 8 PM on NBC, you'll hear his voice in Merry Madagascar, playing Marty the zebra for the third time, along with returning regulars Ben Stiller, David Schwimmer, and Jada Pinkett Smith. He's confident it's not the last time he'll voice Marty, either, with Madagascar 3 in the works.

So why does a guy who can do anything he wants spend time in front of a microphone pretending to be a cartoon animal?

"Money," he says jokingly, speaking on a conference call on Wednesday. "No, no they're good. You realize as you get longer in this business, the only thing that keeps you working is doing good stuff. You know, I mean the box office is great, too, but if people don't like what you do the moment the box office isn't fair, they don't want to work with you anymore."

Bill Cosby awarded Mark Twain Prize

Bill Cosby: HimselfOne of America's greatest TV icons has been officially recognized as one of its greatest humorists. Yes, he's still one of the greatest TV icons, but giving him another honor for his work in TV is like giving Jay Leno a free car.

Bill Cosby received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on Monday at the Kennedy Center.

The event, set for broadcast on PBS on Nov. 4., featured presentations and words from comedy notables such as Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld. It also featured a Cosby Show reunion of sorts with Phylicia Rashad and Malcolm-Jamal Warner. It's a good thing Dr. Huxtable didn't take his boy out of the world after all.

The Jay Leno Show: Chris Rock

Chris Rock with Jay Leno
Jay Leno's sit-down with Chris Rock on Thursday's show felt like it didn't really need Jay. Chris was just doing his act, which is fine since he's a comedian. If Joe the Plumber was just doing his stand-up act on Jay's chairs, that would be another story, and quite possibly another universe.

But as another great talk show producer once said, "A host with less talent would have interrupted him."

Rock's comedy was on the money, an expected bit of entertainment from a man who knows more about comedy and writing than you or I ever will. His bit about recently arrested film director Roman Polanski was particularly funny, especially since it's starting to become "The Michael Jackson Death Coverage 2: Electric Bugaloo" on the press. That's what late night is supposed to do: soften the blows the real world brings.

5 Questions With: Chris Rock

by Kim Potts, posted Jan 20th 2009 6:00AM
"The first black president ... it's a lot of pressure. On the one hand, that's the job you want. On the other hand, it'll be a lot easier to be the third black president."

Emmy- and Grammy-winning comedian Chris Rock has been a busy man -- as well as reprising his role as Marty the zebra in last summer's 'Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa' and just signing a deal to pen his second humor book, the actor's in the midst of his fourth season as narrator and exec producer of 'Everybody Hates Chris.'

On top of all that, this week marks the DVD release of his fifth HBO comedy special, 'Kill the Messenger' -- a seamless merging of three of the comedian's 2008 standup performances in Harlem, London and Johannesburg, South Africa.

Rock, one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people in 2008, talked to AOL TV about 'Messenger' and about his upcoming book, his creative process and whether or not President Barack Obama will prove to be a source of comedic fodder for the next four years.
