Last night, Chris Rock went on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to promote Spiral: From The Book of Saw. While on the show, he talked about performing stand-up again during the pandemic, and mentioned seeing John Mulaney the other night, when he opened for him at his City Winery shows. And Rock had some advice for Mulaney following the news of his divorce that broke last week.
“This is how much money I lost in my divorce,” Rock told Fallon. “I recommended my ex-wife’s divorce lawyer. I was like Your should get this guy. He’ll get you your money.’” He added, with a laugh, “I walked out with nothing. I couldn’t even afford the tickets tonight.”
Rock went through his own highly publicized divorce back in 2014. The divorce served as fodder for his 2017 stand-up tour and subsequent Netflix special, Tambourine, which was released in 2018.
