Outtakes: Chris Rock’s 1989 bit about finding God

Here's a treat for you.

In this previously unseen clip from the cutting-room floor of the 1989 documentary about then up-and-coming comedian Chris Rock, the stand-up is seen at the Comic Strip Live joking about "finding God" and how different religions try to recruit new followers. Notice how Rock already has several of his mannerisms in place, among them his poise, confidence and delivery. Bonus fun fact: Judah Friedlander was behind the camera on this.

Roll the clip!
