I created this promo character to banter with Chris Rock about his special guest star appearance on the season premiere of Everybody Hates Chris.
My creative director was also Chris - Chris Donovan @ the CW.
To demo the concept, I produced this homage to the classic Hank Kingsley audience warm-up bit "Applesauce" from the Larry Sanders Show. Always steal from the best, right?

Hey is this thing on?
(he taps the microphone, reacts to the feedback)
Wow. You guys are one great-looking audience for the season premiere of The CW Comedy Monday!
(reacts to audience applause)
All right! And that sign up there - what's that say? Oh, oh applause! Applause! But not for me, you know - I'm just the warm-up guy, right?
You put the oopid in stoopid!
Okay. Hey, give it up for special guest star Chris Rock on the season premiere of Everybody Hates Chris!
Here we go!
The CW Comedy Monday season premiere - tonight!
