Chris Rock hasn’t performed a stand up comedy for eight years since ‘Kill the Messenger’, but last night he announced that 2017 is going to see his return to the touring circuit with a whole new show named ‘Total Blackout’.

In even better news, these shows are going to be filmed and they’re likely going to be broadcast at some point on Netflix, which means even if you don’t manage to score tickets for it (and let’s be honest, it’s doubtful it’s going to be coming to the UK), then at least you’ll be able to see it and enjoy it in all its glory at some point. Rock made the announcement at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles where he regularly hangs out. You can see that below:
Sounds like Chris is pretty excited about that – although not sure why he was bugging up The Comedy Store so much – but so probably is everyone who’s seen the announcement, because that’s guaranteed to be a good time right? Chris Rock always smashes it. He even said it was a world tour, so maybe we will get a one off date in London or something. Here’s hoping.
With Dave Chapelle also recently announcing his first new comedy shows in years that are also going to be screened on Netflix, it looks like 2017 is going to be a good year for comedy. Here’s hoping Netflix continues to pull shit like this out of the bag because it’s definitely making the thought of the future bearable right now.
