I still bomb on stage: Chris Rock

News

"It's not bombing to you, but it's bombing to me. I do like 20, 30 shows in clubs before I even go into a big arena, so I get all my bombing done on a smaller scale. It's not like I bomb the whole show, but 'Oooh, that first ten minutes was horrible.' Then I dig myself out of the hole," Chris says.

The 52-year-old star says after becoming famous, stand-up comedians understand the tricks to make the audience laugh and stop working on their writing and he finds this situation dangerous, reported GQ magazine.

"The real danger is you get too famous--you learn how to manipulate your instrument in a way that you make people laugh without really writing good jokes, which happens to lots of funny people. They figure out the rhythms of funny and stop with the actual writing.
