THROWBACK THURSDAY: Chris Rock Performs Standup Comedy At Gonzaga In 1993

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Anyone remember seeing Chris Rock do standup comedy at Gonzaga in the 1990's? We came across this clip in the KHQ archives from April 1993. The show was at Gonzaga's Martin Centre. The Spokesman Review's headline on May 5th was "Rock delivers good, dirty fun" and "Comedian goofs on 'clean' show, but wit, charming delivery overcome raunchy material."

The Spokesman article written by Jim Kershner says "it was also clear that Rock had no idea he was in a Catholic university, referring to when "the crowd was uncomfortable" when Rock started talking at length about the topic of abortion. In April 1993 for Chris Rock, it was a month after his movie "CB4" hit the theaters and it was his last season as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live."

Here's the link to a Spokesman Review article:
