Chris Rock is featured in the latest issue of Vanity Fair. In the interview, the comedian discusses the state of comedy, legalizing marijuana, and his lowest career point. Check out some excerpts below
On legalizing medical-marijuana: “I’m all for the legalization of weed. I have two daughters, too, but we all know that alcohol is worse and legal. Seth Rogen is a productive member of society. Mel Gibson has a problem.”
On professional low points: “One night in Chicago, as usual I was the headliner, and on this night my opening act was an up-and-coming comic named Martin Lawrence. Now, normally I never used to watch the opening acts, but I was in my dressing room and I heard a roar. I got up to see what was going on. I thought it was a fight or something. So I got up and went to the side of the stage. When I got there I realized it wasn’t a fight, it was people laughing so hard that the building was shaking. People were crying, standing, stomping their feet—screaming laughter. I was terrified. It was like watching somebody fucking your wife with a bigger dick.”
Chris Rock was on his best behavior last evening when he attend the premier of his movie “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” at the Ziegfeld Theatre with his family in New York City.
Earlier in the day while promoting the film on ‘TODAY,’ the actor who lend his voice to Marty the Zebra took a dig at Chris Brown about his domestic violence issues with Rihanna.
During the interview, host Matt Lauer brought the show back from a commercial break by saying, “we’re hoping the same kind of weather hits us tomorrow when we’ve got Chris Brown out on the plaza,” of course the comedian saw nothing but opportunity to crack one of his quick-comebacks. “Did you say you hope the same weather hits you?” he said with a huge grin, adding, “I hope some weather doesn’t smack us upside the head tomorrow.” Check the video.

And if you’re a black man, you can play a donkey or a zebra.”
