THE WARM-UP GUY WITH CHRIS ROCK

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?

Wow. You guys are one great-looking audience for the season premiere of The CW Comedy Monday!

WARM-UP GUY:
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?

CHRIS ROCK:
You put the oopid in stoopid!

WARM-UP GUY:
Okay. Hey, give it up for special guest star Chris Rock on the season premiere of Everybody Hates Chris!
