Former funny man Chris Rock, 52, has had many hugely unsuccessful films in recent years, perhaps only second to Adam Sandler, so obviously he’s realised that he’s perhaps better at stand-up comedy after such incredibly bad film flops like ‘Top Five‘, ‘Grown Ups 1 & 2‘, ‘2 Days in New York‘ and ‘Death at a Funeral‘, have all crashed and burned with Chris Rock in the cast.
So, it might be befitting after seeing friend Dave Chappelle making a huge success with his return to stand-up comedy, that Chris Rock would come out from underneath a rock and hard place, to solidify a UK stand up comedy tour, which is exactly what he has done. This news comes just days after the news of Chris Rock’s affair with Kerry Washington for a whole six months of hank-panky whilst he was married, an inside source said about the time in 2007: “He was cheating on his wife with Kerry when they were filming ‘I Think I Love My Wife’ about him, ironically, having fantasies of cheating on his wife. That went on for a while, for like six months, and she found out. There’s no grey area.”
How original and guess who wrote the film, none other than Chris Rock and Louis C.K., so perhaps it was an excuse to just cheat on his wife? Who knows?
Anyway, fans of his will be glad to hear that he’s going to be picking up that microphone for some real stand-up comedy once again, announcing his ‘Total Blackout’ tour of the United Kingdom, his first in a decade which starts in Manchester and moving on to Leeds, Nottingham, Glasgow, Birmingham and London.
The last time Chris Rock performed in the UK, ten years ago, he sold out the O2 arena with his ‘No Apologies‘ tour and broke the Guinness World Record for the largest live comedy gig audience ever seen. Ka-ching!
So, can Chris Rock emulate that earlier success with his visit to the UK, which is apart of a worldwide tour planned for next year in 2018? We’re not sure, but clearly he is set to be more of a success on a comedy tour than in another horrible film, alongside Adam Sandler, right?
He’s even gone as far as calling the ‘Total Blackout’ tour as the ‘Alimony’ tour after his divorce from wife, Malaak Compton-Rock ended after 18 years together and perhaps his affair with Kerry Washington, sealed that deal?
In an interview published in Rolling Stone Magazine, Chris Rock said, “won’t ever get married again. Not if I could cure AIDS.”
He confessed that he “wasn’t a good husband a lot of the times” and that he was “a piece of sh*t” for cheating on his wife with three different women, whilst his film career flopped everywhere, apart from his role as the animated Zebra “Marty” in the ‘Madagascar‘ films, but this hasn’t stopped him from once again joining up with Adam Sandler in the new Netflix movie, ‘The Week Of’, so we can all look forward to that one, as well.
The Total Blackout tour tickets will go on sale on May the 12th and the performances kick off at the Manchester Arena on the 11th of January and will conclude at the O2 Arena on 27 January of 2018. Stick to stand up Chris, it’s where you’re most appreciated.
Brainstain, over and out!
