Chris Rock jokes about 'crazy' wife

Chris Rock

Chris Rock has joked that he has a real wife and "a comedy crazy b***h wife".

The funny man described how having a family of his own has changed his comedy act.

Chris revealed that jokes about children and women are the ones that crowds find the most humorous, so he has had to devise a fictitious wife for to avoid hurting his partner's feelings.

"[It's not OK to say on stage] any of your family's personal business. No experience that is just theirs. I don't really worry about what they are thinking. Anything I say about women, I try to make sure that at least five or six friends of mine are going through a similar situation. That way I'm not picking on my wife," Chris told the US edition of Vanity Fair. "We like to say I have my real wife, who's a lovely woman, mother to my children. Then I have my comedy wife, who's a crazy bi**h."

The star was interviewed for the publication's special comedy edition. The question master was Judd Apatow who guest edited the edition, and Chris confessed to his fellow comedic friend that things have changed since he has married and settled down.

"Yes [things have changed] it was more fun. First of all, you had three goals: (1) To get good at comedy. (2) To make money from comedy. And (3) to get laid from comedy," Chris explained. "[Now what do we do?] Well, people seem to think we're good. We have money. We're married, so the whole working to get laid thing is over. Sad to say, but we work now to maintain our lifestyles, to not suck, and to avoid Celebrity Apprentice."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
