"I've got nothing on Kanye…too many things rhyme with Rock."

— Chris Rock, during a surprise 40-minute guest set Tuesday night at the Comedy Cellar, as the stand-up comedian worked out new material and expanded upon older jokes. Rock will appear Thursday on NBC's The Jay Leno Show. Rock won an Emmy earlier this month for writing his most recent HBO special, Kill The Messenger.
