Chris Rock stopped by to promote his new HBO special and said he was glad to visit on a day that Artie wasn't "on leave." When Chris noted he had seen Robin's boat in Jet Magazine, Howard asked if he thought it was ridiculous that Robin has a yacht when she can't swim. Chris replied he couldn't swim either. "I'm from Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. You can't just go around the corner [and find a pool]," he told Howard.
Howard wondered how Chris put together his latest HBO special, so Chris explained that he puts his set together and then flies in a handful of writers to watch him perform it in Vegas and give him notes. "You invest in yourself," Chris said. Sal came in to finally ask Chris if he was offended when Sal greeted him at a Beastie Boys concert back in the '90s with a friendly, "What's up, my n---a?" Chris didn't remember meeting Sal but said, "People curse around me more than they do around other people ... I don't need that."
Chris told the crew about a "prank" that was pulled on him in South Africa that involved a rumor about him having an affair with a young British girl. It was all part of a bit for a TV show. "They said I had sex with a minor in London," he explained. Howard said he would kill anyone who made similar accusations about him. Chris said the prank show's producers set up a fake courtroom and a huge supporting cast, but he knew he was safe. "I knew I hadn't f'ed anybody .. .[so] I got the f' out the country," Chris said.
