Chris Rock : "It's a Weird Year for Comedy"

Chris Rock :

Chris Rock opened up in a lengthy new cover story about a variety of topics, ranging from the recent sexual assault claims made against fellow comedian Bill Cosby, his appreciation for romantic comedies, specifically those penned by Nancy Meyers.

The current allegations of rape made against fellow comedian Bill Cosby, "I don’t know what to say," Rock said. "What do you say? I hope it’s not true. That’s all you can say. I really do. I grew up on Cosby. I love Cosby, and I just hope it’s not true. It’s a weird year for comedy. We lost Robin Williams, we lost Joan Rivers, and we kind of lost Cosby."

Rock reflected about Williams' suicide this past August. "Comedians kill themselves," he reasoned of the beloved star. For Rock, his saving grace was his family, including his wife Malaak and kids Lola and Zahra. "You try to give yourself other things to focus on," he mused. "I always say, my children saved me from my miserable self."
Rock lauded late comedienne Joan Rivers for her contributions to his field. "Great person, underrated comedian," Rock first noted of Rivers who passed in September.

Rock also shared his love for a particular genre of comedy: the RomCom. "There's a sprinkle of Nora Ephron in there," he said of his latest film.”She and I used to talk about making a movie all the time. She always used to say to me, "Are you ready to walk? That's the only way we're going to make a movie. We're going to have to do a lot of walking and talking."

The comic also spoke fondly about another legendary RomCom writer and director. "I'd love to do a Nancy Meyers movie," he confessed, "I love her. It's nice taking your mother to a Nancy Meyers movie. It's tradition. They should have one every Thanksgiving or Christmas."
