Concluding a $40 million deal for two live specials, it marks Chris Rock's return to stand-up for the first time in eight years.
Chris Rock has been persuaded to make a long-awaited comeback to stand-up comedy, reportedly signing a whopping $40 million contract with Netflix for two live special shows.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the huge deal of $20 million per stand-up comedy performance will mark Rock’s return to live comedy for the first time in eight years. The deal is way more than current comedy heavyweights like Amy Schumer or Louis C.K. can currently command, and a record high for Rock himself.

The Academy responded to an irate letter sent last week by nearly two-dozen actors and filmmakers of Asian descent.
The organisers of The Oscars have apologised for the “tone-deaf” portrayal of Asians in various jokes at this year’s ceremony, after a group of actors and filmmakers of Asian descent complained of being offended.
The Academy was embroiled in a vociferous diversity row in the run-up to the 2016 awards, which were held at the end of February, after all 20 acting nominees were white for the second year in a row. Though it subsequently pledged to double its number of women and minority members by the end of the decade, it has once again found itself at the centre of controversy.

While Pinkett Smith boycotted the ceremony, Rock used his opening monologue to make at joke a her expense.
Actress Jada Pinkett Smith has spoken for the first time since last weekend’s Oscar ceremony, where host Chris Rock took a swipe at her during his opening monologue. The wife of Will Smith had announced she was boycotting this year’s ceremony due to the lack of diversity among the nominees, but Rock joked that she hadn’t been invited anyway.
Jada Pinkett Smith has spoken out after Chris Rock’s Oscar joke.
“Jada [Pinkett Smith] said she’s not coming,” Rock said during the February 28th ceremony. “I was like, ‘Isn’t she on a TV show?’ Jada’s going to boycott The Oscars? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited!”

Dunn took the whole thing in good humour.
Linda Dunn, the woman name-checked by Oscars host Chris Rock as he led his daughters in a competitive fund-raising effort by selling Girl Scout cookies to the assorted celebs at the ceremony on Sunday night, has spoken about being referenced in person on national TV.
After the stunt led to a massive 13,000 boxes of snacks being sold, and a reported (but unconfirmed!) $65,000 raised for his daughters Zahra and Lola’s troop, the New Jersey mom he name-dropped said that she has no hard feelings about what happened.
Chris Rock called out Linda Dunn during the Girl Scout cookie stunt during Sunday's Oscars
The amusing stunt raised over $65,000 in one go.
As well as cracking a few zingers at the expense of the lack of diversity in the nominations list, Oscars host Chris Rock used the ceremony as a platform for his two daughters to sell Girl Scout cookies on Sunday night – and made a pretty impressive amount of money doing so.
“I have missed most of girls scout cookie season,” the 51 year old emcee explained as he led his two daughters, Zahra and Lola, up and down the aisles at the Dolby Theatre to sell Mint Thins and various treats to the audience – and taking the opportunity to guilt trip a few A-listers into coughing up contributions, including Tina Fey, Mindy Kaling, Henry Cavill and Christian Bale.

The joke appearance from the ‘Clueless’ actress fell flat during Sunday night’s ceremony.
Against the backdrop of the ongoing diversity debate in Hollywood, comedian Chris Rock did a stellar job of hosting this year’s Oscars ceremony. But one joke did fall noticeably flat at the Dolby Theatre last night, when actress Stacey Dash appeared to wish everyone a "Happy Black History Month!”
Stacey Dash appeared at last night’s Oscars, but no one got the joke.
After addressing the diversity debate head-on during his opening monologue, Rock later brought out Dash, jokingly introducing her as, “the director of our new minority outreach program.” "I cannot wait to help my people out," Dash then said onstage. "Happy Black History Month!”

Rock was reported to be rewriting his Oscars’ scrip to address the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.
Chris Rock’s publicist has denied the comedian has rewritten his Oscars’ script to incorporate the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. Rock will host the ceremony on February 28th, but has faced pressure to step down as the awards' host, as the debate over the Academy’s lack of diversity continues.
Chris Rock’s rep has denied he’s made changes to his Oscars’ script.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight over the weekend, Academy Awards producer Reginald Hudlin insisted that Rock will not be stepping down as this year’s host and is instead working on a new script that will address the #OscarsSoWhite outrage.

Rock will be hosting the Academy Awards on February 28th.
Some have called for Chris Rock to step down as host of this year’s Oscar’s ceremony, as the debate over the lack of diversity among the nominees continues. But despite pressure, Rock isn’t planning to give up his hosting duties and instead will reportedly be addressing the issue during his opening monologue.
Chris Rock is expected to address #OscarsSoWhite when he hosts this year’s ceremony.
Academy Awards producer Reginald Hudlin told Entertainment Tonight that Rock will not be stepping down as this year’s host and is instead working on a new script that will address the #OscarsSoWhite outrage.
It's getting pretty complicated now...
This year's Academy Awards season is turning out to be a pretty intense ride, with the uproar over the nominations' lack of cultural diversity causing a division in the entertainment world. While some people are saying that they're planning to boycott the ceremony when it was revealed that not one black actor or director had been nominated, others are saying that the situation has been blown way out of proportion.
So what exactly is the debate? This is year is the second year in a row that not one person of colour has been nominated for an Oscar in the major categories. It's not even that it hasn't been an option, especially when you look at the Golden Globe nominations and the calibre of movies featuring black lead actors in 2015 like 'Chi-Raq', 'Creed', 'Beasts of No Nation', 'Straight Outta Compton' and 'Concussion'. Last year, admittedly, did see fewer options. However, 'Selma' was one of the biggest movies of the year (and probably one of the most important in this decade) but still only managed to scoop a Best Original Song prize. Justin Simien's 'Dear White People' wasn't recognised at all and nor was Denzel Washington's 'The Equalizer'.

Rock is hosting the Oscars for the first time since 2005, but the #OscarsStillSoWhite uproar has led to calls for him to step down altogether rather than try to initiate change from within.
Oscars host Chris Rock is coming under increasing calls to boycott the awards ceremony in the aftermath of the controversial nominations last week, in which none of the 20 acting nominations went to a black or ethnic minority actor.
#OscarsSoWhite and #OscarsStillSoWhite have kept the furore going on social media since the announcement of the major acting and directing categories happened a week ago, and now a number of celebrities including Furious 7 star Tyrese Gibson are arguing that Rock ought to step down as host.

The Oscars’ host is well aware of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy which erupted after this year’s nominees were announced.
This year’s Oscar nominations were announced on Thursday and immediately drew criticism for their lack of diversity, causing the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite to trend. But now the 2016 host Chris Rock has even referenced the controversy by referring to The Oscars as ‘The White BET Awards’ in a tweet.
This year’s Oscars host Chris Rock.
Sharing his new promo for the February 28th ceremony Rock tweeted, ‘The #Oscars. The White BET Awards.’ In the promo Rock gives us three reasons why we should tune into this year’s ceremony: "Presenter cleavage," "Check out who died this year" and "I might curse.”

Rock will host the annual ceremony on February 28th.
Chris Rock is gearing up to host the Academy Awards for the second time and to him the Oscars is much like New Years Eve. In his first promo vid ahead of the 2016 ceremony Rock compares the annual awards to December 31st, saying it's full of ‘drunk, disappointed people’.
Chris Rock is hosting the 2106 Oscars.
In the clip, after introducing himself as the 2016 host, Rock goes on to say, “Much like New Year’s Eve, it’ll be a night that ends with a lot of drunk, disappointed people swearing they’ll do better next year.”

The comedian addressed Jennifer Lawrence’s gender pay-gap essay during a New Yorker profile on ‘Saturday Night Live’s’ Leslie Jones.
Back in October Jennifer Lawrence became the face of Hollywood’s gender pay inequality issue, when she penned an essay on Lena Dunham’s website titled, ‘Why Do I Make Less Than My Male Co-Stars?’ But in an article in the New Yorker, comedian Chris Rock has dismissed Lawrence’s grievances, claiming that if she were black then 'she’d really have something to complain about'.
Chris Rock has addressed Jennifer Lawrence’s pay-gap comments.
In Lawrence’s essay she wrote about feeling as if she had "failed as a negotiator”, when she learnt she’d been paid less than her American Hustle co-stars, saying that she had been worried about appearing spoilt or ‘difficult’.
Developments over the official adoption status of the couple's adopted daughter Ntombi have emerged in the last week.
Malaak Compton-Rock, the estranged wife of comedian and actor Chris Rock, has struck back in the row that’s erupted in the divorce courtroom about child support regarding a child who, according to her, has been raised as their own and “cherished and adored” for year.
50 year old Rock’s original divorce filing, from December 23rd last year, stated that the couple have just two children – 13 year old Lola and 11 year old Zahra – but a new statement from Compton-Rock’s lawyers reiterates her stance that the couple has effective custody of (but had not yet officially adopted) a 7 year old South African-born girl named Ntombi.

Rock and his former wife are said to have never legally adopted a seven-year-old South African girl who has been living with the family for years.
Comedian and actor Chris Rock is reportedly involved in a legal dispute over a South African girl named Ntombi, who has been living with his family since infancy. Ntombi is said to have lived with Rock and his family since she was six months old, but was never legally adopted by the Rocks.
Chris Rock is involved in a dispute over a South African girl who has been living with his family.
According to TMZ, in 2008, the then 6-month-old began living with the Rock family and has stayed with them ever since. She was even enrolled in a New Jersey school with Rock’s other children.

The 49-year-old funnyman recently explained why it has been a "weird year for comedy."
Chris Rock recently admitted it has been a "weird year for comedy," especially since two iconic stars of the genre, Joan Rivers and Robin Williams, tragically passed away unexpectedly, as well as the shocking allegations of sexual abuse surrounding Bill Cosby.
Rock recently opened up about how it has been a "weird year for comedy"
Rock opened up in the latest issue of New York Magazine about the legacy the late comedians will leave behind, and how he hopes Cosby's rape allegations are "not true."
Also, Prince performed. But let's talk about the pressing issue for now.
Chris Rock has never been one to shy away from shock humour and difficult topics, but his opening monologue on SNL last night might just make you squirm inside. Not only did the comedian address 9/11 (still a touchy subject,) but he also had a joke or two about... the Boston bombing. Yep, he went there.
Chris Rock went there in an unforgettable SNL episode.
The initial bombs, which claimed the lives of three people and injured 268, exploded on April 15, 2013. Obviously, the impact is still fresh for many, so the comedian’s jokes were met with some backlash, to put it mildly.
Andre Allen has been voted the Funniest Man in America in his illustrious career as a stand-up comedian. But somehow, he feels there's more to life than just telling jokes to an audience and so he decides to venture into the world of acting, playing the lead role in the 'Hammy The Bear' cop movie series. Unfortunately, that kind of film isn't going to land him any series roles in the future, and with his reality star fiancee Erica begging him to let her air their forthcoming wedding on her show, he's really starting to feel like the A list isn't where he's ever going to be. In a bid to rediscover himself, he lets a journalist into his life to write a story about him, raising some harsh questions about his career and his future along the way.

Chris Brown has weighed in on the control debate that has dominated America for the past month. Yes, the comedian who's routine once stated that guns should be made available to anyone, but that bullets should cost $5,000 a pop, has updated his stance, but it's just as ridiculous.
"The gun lobby... says people need to be able to protect their property, but every mass shooting is done by guys who live with their mother. So I believe you should need to have a mortgage to buy a gun. A mortgage is a real background check," is what Brown thinks. Of course, we should take everything Rock says with a pinch, nay a dead sea of salt, as he's not shy of controversy. He did appear on the 'Demand a Plan' video which circulated recently. It featured a number of prominent celebrities, in black and white, solemnly naming places that had been locations of shootings, and demanding a plan. The video was later mocked by a cheeky editor who spliced in images and footage of most of the celebs features, holding, firing or trivialising gunplay in movies or TV. Whoops!
Rock's previous bit on guns read something like this: "You don't need no gun control, you know what you need? We need some bullet control. Men, we need to control the bullets, that's right. I think all bullets should cost five thousand dollars. Five thousand dollars per bullet. You know why? Cause if a bullet cost five thousand dollars there would be no more innocent bystanders."
Eddie Murphy was honoured by his peers for his outstanding contribution to film, TV, music and stand-up over his 30 + year career.
Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx, Adam Sandler, and Russell Brand were just some of the famous faces at the Beverley Hills gala being aired on Spike later this month (it airs Nov. 14 at 10 p.m. on Spike). Murphy's friends and co-stars had nothing but praise for Murphy, with his appearances on such comedy classics as Coming To America and The Beverley Hills Cop being recalled by co-stars Arsenio Hall and Judge Reinhold. Jeffrey Katzenberg of Dreamworks Animation also gave his heart to Murphy's Donkey character from the Shrek films, whilst his Life co-star, Martin Lawrence, told him from onstage, “You’ve got a friend for life."
There were also video highlights from the funny man's seminal stand-up performances from the 80's, Raw and Delirious, although despite much attempted persuasion Murphy declined to get back on stage and perform stand up again.

Wow, Barack Obama really does have all the cool kids on his side, doesn’t he? The hip-hop community are falling over themselves to show their support for Obama, with Jay Z and Beyonce leading the charge there. Chris Rock’s been piping up about his love for Obama, too, as have Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith. And the latest in line to go public in their love for the President of the United States of America, in the run-up to next month’s elections is the comedian Lena Dunham, star and creator of HBO’s hot new comedy Girls.
Entitled ‘Your First Time,’ the video starts off with Lena talking seductively about the kind of guy that you want your ‘first time’ to be with and of course, you’ll start off assuming that she’s talking about losing your virginity, as she says things like “The first time shouldn't be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy. Someone who really cares about and understands women… a guy who cares whether you get health insurance and specifically whether you get birth control.” Pretty quickly, though, you realize that Lena isn’t talking about sex at all, but voting for the first time and quips that when she did, she went from being a girl to a woman.
Instead of developing the characters or situations for comedy gold, the filmmakers instead just crank up the chaos. So while some scenes are both funny and visually impressive, this second sequel is simply too inane to make us hope there will be a part 4. Very young kids may be distracted by the hectic pacing and hyperactive characters, but everyone else will quickly be bored by the nonstop mayhem, simply because there's nothing interesting going on.
Anxious lion Alex (Stiller), chatty zebra Marty (Rock), nerdy giraffe Melman (Schwimmer) and silly hippo Gloria (Smith) are living a Lion King-style existence in Africa, although their only hope for escape has just flown away. Namely, the brainy penguins and their monkey assistants. So our heroes follow them to Monaco, where they all end up on the run from the notorious animal control agent Dubois (McDormand). They run straight into a failing circus, which they set out to bring back to its glory days so they can catch the eye of an American promoter and go home to New York. To do this means working with the current circus acts: sultry cheetah Gia (Chastain), dorky sea lion Stefano (Short) and tetchy tiger Vitaly (Cranston).
The circus premise lets the filmmakers have a lot of visual fun with the characters, most notably in a riotously colourful Cirque du Soleil-on-acid performance in London. But the plot makes no sense at all (if they can get to Monaco, surely they could get to New York, right?), and there are so many new characters that the central quartet feels almost sidelined. Especially since they've also wedged in an under-developed romance for the lemur king (Baron Cohen). Yes, it's all over the place, and being busy is not the same thing as being clever or funny.

French beauty Marion and radio presenter Mingus have a wonderfully healthy relationship at home with their children from former relationships. However, their happiness is tested on the arrival of her unconventional and mischievous family who bring with them vulgarity, casual racism and bold opinions. Among them are Rose, Marion's sexually obsessed sister; her crazy boyfriend; Marion's ex-boyfriend and her sausage loving father. Mingus starts to have second thoughts about his girlfriend who appears to have a completely different personality around her outrageous family; he even talks about his frustrations with a cardboard cut-out of his hero and US President Barack Obama.

For two days, these three interlopers push all of Marion's and Mingus' buttons, straining their relationship to the breaking point. And their neighbours (Baker and Burton) are even more irritated.

After escaping to Africa from Madagascar, Alex the lion; Gloria the hippo; Melman the giraffe and Marty the zebra decide it's time to head back to New York once and for all. Unfortunately, they have to rely on the penguins - Skipper; Kowalski; Rico and Private - and the two chimpanzees, Mason and Phil and their combined mechanical knowledge, to get them back home. Nothing can go wrong this time, though, can it?
What to Expect When You're Expecting is a comic adaptation of the New York Times' bestselling pregnancy advice book of the same name. The film centres around five couples whose lives are turned upside down when they learn of their forthcoming parenthood. Whilst Jules and Evan (a fitness guru and a dance show star, respectively) struggle to fit the demands of pregnancy into a busy showbiz lifestyle, the author Wendy finds herself in a spin when her body is held hostage by her rampant pregnancy hormones. Meanwhile, Wendy's husband Gary finds himself competing with his own father, who is expecting twins with his much-younger partner Skyler.
Aspiring author Aaron (Rock) is preparing his father's funeral amid all kinds of distractions. His novelist brother Ryan (Lawrence) jets in from New York, but won't help at all. His wife Michelle (Hall) is pushing him to move out from their mother's (Devine) house. The boyfriend (Marsden) of his cousin (Saldana) has just accidentally been given a hallucinogen. Uncle Russell (Glover) is on the rampage. And a small man (Dinklage) has something shocking to announce.
Through all of this, Aaron's hypochondriac best friend Norman (Morgan) tries to maintain some semblance of order. But he's useless.

Tracing its origins to vaudeville, this "comic's joke" is tantamount to a secret handshake among comedians and their friends. Although versions vary widely, it basically goes like this: A man seeking show biz representation walks into a talent agent's office and describes his family's act, which consists of various illegal and unspeakable activities including incest, bestiality, necrophilia, and an explosion of bodily fluids. After the man finishes, the appalled agent asks what this horrible act is called, to which the man responds, "The Aristocrats!"

Once on the campaign trail, though, Gilliam discovers that he's in tune with the people and ready to be the country's next leader. Encouraged by his brother (Bernie Mac) to speak his mind, Gilliam climbs the public opinion polls, courts a headstrong hottie from his 'hood (Tamala Jones), and puts a scare into his opponent - the incumbent Vice President (Nick Searcy) who keeps reminding us he's "a war hero and Sharon Stone's cousin."

Smart, sharp political satire it's not. But Chris Rock's "Head of State" -- the comedian's directorial debut in which he plays a black man running for president -- mixes a few stinging zingers into its generally crowd-pleasing brand of snickers and knee-slappers.
When asked if he'll step in for the Democratic candidate who died when his plane and his running mate's plane "crashed into each other over Virginia," Mays Gilliam (Rock), a Washington, D.C. alderman, has a split-second flash forward to being shot at his inaugural address before even finishing the line "My fellow Americans..." But he accepts the nomination anyway.
He's provided a specially trained, sworn-to-secrecy "super whore" -- a post-Clinton perk devised to help Democratic candidates avoid sex scandals.
Continue reading: Head Of State Review
Thanks to all the is-it-or-isn't-it-blasphemy controversy surrounding "Dogma," writer-director Kevin Smith has added a tongue-in-cheek disclaimer to the opening of this renegade ribbing of the Catholic church that is so amusing ("...God has a sense of humor, just look at the platypus") it will have audiences in stitches even before the first line of dialogue.
Whether or not you'll think the movie stays this funny will depend on how sensitive you are about your position on the religious yardstick, your threshold for soapbox pontification and what it takes to gross you out.
Smith, the maverick Generation X satirist responsible for ragtag underground hits "Clerks" and "Chasing Amy," makes no bones about testing the limits of irreverence and good taste in this ironically snappy and smart-mouthed theological deliberation.
