#Quote
1I probably, I might be the only black comedian in the country who hasn't gay-bashed. Ever. Like ever, ever!
2[hosting the 2005 Academy Awards] Black movies don't have real names. They get names Iike 'Barbershop'. That's not a name. That's just a location. Barbershop. Cookout. Car Wash. You know, Laundromat's coming soon. And after that, Check-Cashing Place.
3Does having a wife and kids change your life? Yes. but only in the best way. It gives you weight and authority. It also makes you closer to the audience because the audience is married and has kids. People without kids know nothing about kids. Jokes about your kids are always better than jokes about your brother's kids. Married guys know more about women than single guys. Single guys have girlfriends. Girlfriends are always auditioning, always on their best behavior. Wives are like Supreme Court justices - they do whatever the fuck they want.
4[on the Saturday Night Live (1975) sketch that got Chris Farley noticed] 'Chippendales' was a weird sketch. I always hated it. The joke of it is, basically, 'We can't hire you because you're fat.' There's no turn there. There's no comic twist to it. It's just fucking mean. A more mentally together Chris Farley wouldn't have done it, but Chris wanted so much to be liked. As funny as that sketch was and as many accolades as he got for it, it's one of the things that killed him. It really is. Something happened right then.
5I used to have horrible cars that would always end up broken down on the highway. When I tried to flag someone down, nobody stopped. But if I pushed my own car, other drivers would get out and push with me. If you want help, help yourself - people like to see that.
6I was bused to a school in Gerritsen Beach in Brooklyn in 1972. I was one of the first black kids in the history of the school. There were parents with signs: NIGGER GO HOME. For all intents and purposes, the United States had been practicing apartheid until '68. I was spit on every day. I had water balloons with piss thrown at me. I was fucking Carrie (1976).
7You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named 'Bush', 'Dick', and 'Colon'.
8[on Louis C.K.'s late success] I feel like I'm James Brown, and Jimi Hendrix was in my band. He was just some kid I used to beat up, and now he's back, and he's Jimi Hendrix. Is he better than me? I don't know, maybe. He used to write for so many people. "I'm going to L.A. and take some pitch meetings, write some shows." Dude, write for yourself, I would constantly tell him. And some people are funny older than they are younger. Rodney Dangerfield was that. Redd Foxx was that - had careers as young people but when they got older, it was, like, this guy's hysterical. And Louie, at 44, it's the sweet spot for him.
9Dude, people love Grown Ups (2010). I don't care what the critics say. Who won the Academy Award this year? The Artist (2011)? Hey, "The Artist" was great. "Grown Ups" is better than "The Artist," and it's better than "The Artist" 'cause the audience says so. No film critic's going to say it, but "Madagascar 3" is better than "The Artist," and it's better because it makes people feel better. That's ultimately what it boils down to. Carrot Top's better than Mort Sahl. Is he a better writer? Are we going to jot down Carrot Top's prose 100 years from now? I'm not saying that. What I'm saying is, Carrot Top makes people feel better than Mort Sahl ever made people feel.
10Nobody's about saving anymore. No one cares about a rainy day anymore. Nobody saves up enough for even an umbrella for a rainy day. It's sad. It really is a new form of slavery. We used to work to be able to afford material things. Now we work FOR these things. They're the boss. That house you can't afford, that car that's out of your price range, that cellphone that drains your bank account - that's your boss.
11(On his short-lived job at Red Lobster) The thing about Red Lobster is that if you work there, you can't afford to eat there. You're making minimum wage. A shrimp costs minimum wage. I cleaned up after the kids. Kids don't eat. I used to zero in on a kid. 'Don't touch that scallop. Please don't touch that scallop.'
12Every comedian has a moment in his life when he realizes he's a little bit different from everyone else. It's like being the only guy in a movie who sees the ghost. The ghost talks to you and you talk to him. Then you turn to your friend and say, "Hey. Do you see that ghost?" And he says, "What ghost?"
13[about Charles S. Dutton's criticism of Martin (1992)] Is Charles Dutton funny? Huh? At the end of the day, no. He's not. Charles Dutton is not as funny as Martin Lawrence. Now, I got nothing against Charles Dutton... but let's be truthful here. If Roc (1991) was funny, it would be on the air... But Charles Dutton is always preaching. How can you say someone has a negative image? You're A Murderer!
14I'm much closer to Mort Sahl and George Carlin and Sam Kinison... It is what it is. - on being compared to Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy.
15I pride myself on being the guy who can do Def Comedy Jam (1992) and Charlie Rose (1991). And do well on both.
16For me, anything goes when I pick up a mike. I'm not trying to hurt people - I try not to get too personal - but I look at myself as a reporter. If you can report on anything that has to do with pop culture, then why can't I make jokes about it? Yes, it hurts. But I figure that laughter sometimes starts from pain. You might wince, but then I know that I'm doing my job. The only thing I can do wrong is not be funny.
17My life was Welcome to the Dollhouse (1995). I would get beat up every day, called "nigger" and spit on. You get used to it. I couldn't fight back, I was so outnumbered, so I would just stand there and take it. The worst part is that, after a while, your spirit is broken. I'd go to my parents and say, "Take me out of here. But they thought it was a better school. I guess it toughened me up. - on being a Black student in a predominately White school
18I think what kind of person you are during success is who you are. It's easy to be nice in failure and when you're broke - then you really need a lot of help from people. But after you win some money, that's the person you really are, because now you can be mean to people. You can act like an asshole. I've seen people trip out again and again. A lot of times this behavior, when you're up, will determine if you get another shot someday, because things in this business always go down. I want them to say, "He was a nice guy during the whole process. He never did the entourage thing." Because that ain't funny. It's annoying.
19I thought, hopefully this will be better than other HBO specials, and I'll get whatever rewards come with that. Maybe somebody will want me to do a sitcom - if I'm lucky. Next thing they were talking about it on C-Span, and I'm like, Huh? My only goal was to do a show that was good enough that when I played a club, I wouldn't have to promote it on radio. - on the success of Chris Rock: Bring the Pain (1996)
20The only reaction that frightens me is people not laughing. It's extraordinary to me when you get a laugh. That you can go in front of a bunch of people you never met before, you can say some stuff and they all laugh in unison - that's amazing. It's a miracle.
21Nobody's good. I hate it. I truly hate it. I mean, there's a lot of guys doing stuff I admire, but stand-up-wise I feel very alone. I really miss [Bill] Hicks. I wish I could have put him on my show. And I really miss Sam [Kinison] a lot. Richard [Pryor]'s sick... It's like you get here and then, oh wait a minute, there's nobody here any more. I feel like the guy who finally got into Studio 54, three years too late, "Duh, where are all the famous people?"
22It's the worst script I've ever gotten. The rap group was called Nubian Nation Pussy Patrol! I'd have been happier getting an envelope full of anthrax. - on receiving the script for Marci X (2003).
23I was directing it for the wrong reasons, maybe out of fear. - on Head of State (2003).
24You want to track Hollywood careers, look in the real estate section. You see a guy buy a house that costs $6 million, and you can literally start counting the days until he starts doing crappy movies.
25I shouldn't be able at this late date to go into a club and be better than guys who are there every night. Nobody really wants to be a stand-up, they want to get on TV. Everybody wants to be Seinfeld (1989), nobody wants to be Jerry Seinfeld.
26There's no interference in stand-up. It's all the things it's hard to get in film: I get to have a wife, I get to have kids. I get to be sexual. I get to grow. I get to be a man.
27I think if I were to get as big as I could get, it does change your mind-state. I think like the little man. I think like the underdog. I don't want to change that.
28At home, [we play] a lot of Disney stuff -- _Raven [Raven-Symoné], _ High School Musical (2006) (TV)_ soundtrack. My kids love Beyoncé Knowles, but there are a few songs I can't let them listen to -- they're so materialistic! They're all about chinchilla coats and BBS Slims [cell phone]. I'd rather have them listening to a protest song!
29It's no different. It's not like I ever cursed around my mother or anything. I never had a hard time turning it on and off. It's like you enter another country - sometimes you're in a cursing country and then you're in a kid's country.
30I don't think my comedy is that political. It's more social. But whatever. When you make comedy and you do stand-up, you work alone. Movies have to go under so much scrutiny. A stand-up special is a vision, and a movie is a consensus in a lot of ways.
31Women would rule the world - if only they'd stop bitchin' about each other.
32I like talking about subjects that aren't funny in the first place and making them funny. So anything down and depressing is something I'll talk about.
33"I was raised to believe that you had to do things better than white people in order to succeed. The old black shows were better than the white shows. The Jeffersons (1975) was a lot better. Good Times (1974) was way funnier. Sanford and Son (1972). Now, though, everyone thinks we're equal, so we submit the same s... that everyone else submits. And then we get mad when they won't air it. You got to go back to the old attitude of it has to be twice as good".
34The material comes from whenever you realize that you and someone else have something in common. So any conversation you've had more than once, anything you see happening to you that you see happening to a friend, you go, 'Hmmm, that's a situation I can make funny.'
35I just remember that whenever I got really mad or passionate, like in an argument, people would laugh, and I'd be dead serious. It would happen a lot. So it was like, 'Gee, I've got something here.'
36"I'm a rap comedian the same way Bill Cosby is a jazz comedian, Cosby's laid back. I'm like, bang, bang bang, right into it".
37It's weird with stand-up comedy. It doesn't really translate worldwide. I want to figure out how do I make it worldwide. Do a special in Africa. Can't beat that. Pull that off, then I will have done something.
38I love my life, but I don't think I'm any happier than my younger brother Andre, who drives a garbage truck.
39I'm like the Hulk on stage. It's way over the top. That's Bizarro Chris. Sometimes I get off stage and go "What did I say?!" I'll watch one of my [stand-up] specials a year later and go "Eww, that was mean.
40I always say there's no more little girls, just boys with (breasts). Girls act like boys nowadays. Teenage girls, they go after boys. They're predatory just like boys. My goal is to keep my girls, girls.
41All people naturally hate. My kid bites people now. I didn't teach my kid to bite anybody. Kids say mean stuff. Only through love do we get this evil out of them. Only through love and structure and discipline do they not hate. The kids that hate didn't learn anything, that's the problem.
42If you live with a single parent, you don't see compromise. You witness a grown person living in a world where they do what they want to do. When you are raised by two parents, you are constantly watching compromise take place. Just by observing that, it made me a better person.
43I used to watch my father go to work every day and come home and be so beat. We had seven kids. I always wondered what he really wanted to do. Now that I'm older and have my own kids, I realize there's nothing better than to work for your kids. I'm sure he got more gratification from his work than I do. My father was feeding his kids every week, paying the heating bills. If he didn't work, then it didn't get done. There's a tremendous amount of gratification from that. And a tremendous amount of pressure, too.
44I'm happy if everybody else is. I'm a big brother, the oldest. If you're happy and I'm not, I'm cool with that. If I'm happy and you're not, I'm sad.
45I'm more patient. I'm less of a recluse. I've been on TV for a long freaking time, and it can definitely isolate you. You get to where you only have things in common with people in the business, and kids open you up to a new world. You have something in common with just about everybody. I think I'm a better artist. Everything I've done since I've had kids is better than the stuff I did before I had kids.
46I love having somebody there - that companion thing. You know who you're going to eat with, who you're going to see a movie with.
47I've been married for 10 years and, you know, it's hard, you spruce it up and you go places. How do you spruce up anything? Artificially. You go places and do things.
48The best part is just having a partner. There is no real worst part. I'm not going to say there's a worst part. I mean I'm a comedian - comedians like to work alone. So maybe I'm not the ideal guy to be married to, in that sense.
49Guys play characters that won't grow up and something catastrophic happens and they have to grow up to save the day -- that's pretty much what today's comedy is about,
50I'm a nerd. I'm a little guy...the last guy you'd expect in a romantic movie.
51You know, just right place right time, lucked up. Thank God for animation. I can turn down a lot of movies now.
52I don't write jokes first. I write down topics. I think of what I want to talk about, and then I write the jokes--they don't write me...And even if you don't think it's funny, you won't think it's boring. You might disagree, but you'll listen. And maybe even laugh as you disagree.
53Now that I have children, I realize taking care of my children is more fun than anything in the whole world.
54I always say about my daughters, they save me from my miserable self. They take me out, you know, a comedian, you could live in your head a lot. And you're writing and you're doubting. But when I'm with my kids and my family, it's all about them.
55America is the most powerful country in the world and I think every intelligent country should be concerned about what's going on here. I've got no beef with Brits objecting to our election outcome. I applaud that. I'll tell you right now, Americans don't care about what's going on in other countries.
56People want comedians to be funny. I mean I love Jim Carrey in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) but it ain't a better performance than in Dumb & Dumber (1994). I can do serious roles sometimes in other people's movies but not in one of my own. I don't wanna ask my fans to come and not laugh at me: 'Hey! Come on, let's go see Chris Rock not be funny!'
57I never wanted to churn it out. Comedians tend to work all the time. They never put it down like musicians who might make an album then take three or four years off to recharge their batteries. Comedians tend to work straight through and they get stale because of that. Even when I didn't have a lot of money I never ever did it unless I had something new to say.
58Hollywood's just not funny. You walk around and think 'Where's the funny at?' It's not there - all there is is a bunch of directors and actors walking around. I like going into a diner and meeting real people. Funny is where the real people are.
59I like the tradition of the Oscars. I like that some of the greatest comedians ever have hosted the show.
60How do I say this without sounding like an egomaniac?. I don't know a comedian that sells more seats than me in the red states and blue states, so I don't see where I have to change that much.
61I'm never proper or careful, but I never curse in front of my mother, either.
62A man is basically as faithful as his options.
