Last night Chris Rock worked out some material for his upcoming "Total Blackout" tour—his first tour in nine years—which kicks off on Valentine's Day. Rock took the stage at the Comedy Cellar on Macdougal Street, where he followed Jerry Seinfeld, and was then joined on stage by Amy Schumer, Aziz Ansari, and Dave Chappelle.

Working out with Dave and Amy. Total blackout tour coming.

Here's what comedian Jon Laster, who hosted the show, wrote about the night:

Tonight I was humbled and blessed to have been a part of the greatest show EVER in the history of the Comedy Cellar and maybe comedy period! We were sitting on the steps when Dave Chappelle told the manager that he didn't wanna go on he just wanted to watch Jerry Seinfeld go on and then he was leaving. He quickly changed his mind and decided to go up. He and Chris Rock then went back and forth about who would be next. Amy Schumer overheard them and asked if she could do five minutes also to be a part of this 'history.' I forgot that Aziz was somewhere outside and needed to go on as well. Felt kinda surreal working with my idols. The Birds, Jordans, LeBrons all in this little hallway but I honestly didn't feel intimidated I felt like I belonged atleast like my work did. I started to excuse myself from this picture and Amy pulled me back into it and said 'fuck that get in the picture you were a part of this!' Thank you soooooo much Estee!! The Lineup:
Host: Me
Ryan Hamilton
Dave Attell
Jerry Seinfeld
Amy Schumer

No videos have surfaced (typically there are strict rules against recording comedy sets, especially when a comedian is working out material), so we'll just have to read about it from those who were there:

Somehow, a 9:30 show on a Wednesday in January becomes:
1) dude from Idaho
2) Dave attel
3) Jerry Seinfeld
4) Amy schumer
me saying "what poor bastard has to follow these 2 drop ins"
5) Chris rock
6) aziz ansari
7) Dave Chappelle
8) from the stage, Dave chapelle asking Chris rock questions while he's in the audience
9) Chris rock coming back riffing on stage with Chappell
The line of the night: "you guys saw a billion dollars worth of comedians tonight." That wasn't an exaggeration




Rock, who will be at the Borgata in Atlantic City on June 3rd, has also landed a $40 million deal for two standup specials that will air on Netflix. Chappelle will reportedly get $60 million from Netflix for three specials. And it was just announced that Schumer's new comedy special was also nabbed by Netflix.
