“It’s great to be back”

“Chris Rock is truly the MVP of the entertainment industry. Comedian, actor, writer, producer, director, documentarian – he’s done it all.  He’s going to be a phenomenal Oscar host!” (via Oscars.org) When you hear the producers describe you in such a respected manner, it has to be a tremendous feeling and very much so deserved. He has won Emmys for his stand up routines and Grammys to go along with the hardware as well. Undoubtedly has to be mentioned when discussing the best comedians of this generation.
