HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - MARCH 27: In this handout photo provided by A.M.P.A.S., Chris Rock is seen backstage during the 94th Annual Academy Awards at Dolby Theatre on March 27, 2022 in Hollywood, California.

Chris Rock performed 2 of the 6 sold out shows at the Wilbur last night and everyone who was hoping to get a long reaction to what happened Sunday was pretty disappointed. He did address it, with a simple “How was your weekend?” Followed by ‘I don’t have a bunch of s*** to say about that, so if you came here for that…I had written a whole show before this weekend. I’m still processing what happened, so at some point I’ll talk about that s***. It’ll be serious. It’ll be funny, but right now I’m going to tell some jokes.”

He received two standing ovations which made Chris get emotional. Many said they could see tears streaming down his face. Chris has four more shows starting tonight at the Wilbur.
