Chris Rock Reportedly Paid $40 Million For TWO Upcoming Comedy Specials
Chris Rock could just be the new King of Comedy as he reportedly lands a $40 million deal with Netflix for just TWO comedy specials.
TWO. $20 million each. What. Is. Life.
"Chris Rock is a beloved actor and director, and his remarkable stand-up makes him comic royalty," explained Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer. "There is no one like him, and Netflix offers the global platform and creative freedom that will serve as a perfect home for someone with his incredible talent."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, these two specials have lured Rock away from his previous deals with HBO for Big Ass Jokes (1994), Bring the Pain (1998), Bigger & Blacker (2000), Never Scared (2004) and Kill The Messenger (2008).
We still can't get over Rock's bit about the difference between men and women (below) so safe to say: 100% will watch.
