Finding out the fact that Barack Obama is too inspiring to become the subject of a joke, Chris Rock calls him as a "comedian's worst nightmare".
Sharing his thought about the United States of America's 44th president Barack Obama, Chris Rock says he tends to consider Obama as a "comedian's worst nightmare". He then quickly explains his claim, stating it is because Obama is too inspiring to make fun of.
"He's just one of those guys, you know, like Will Smith. There's no Will Smith jokes," the funny man says. "There's no Brad Pitt jokes. You know, what are you going to say? 'You used to have sex with Jennifer Aniston. Now you have sex with Angelina Jolie. You're such a loser.' What do you say? 'Ooh, your movies are big. You make $20 million.' There's nothing to say about Brad Pitt."
"(With Obama) it's like, 'Ooh, you're young and virile and you've got a beautiful wife and kids. You're the first African-American president.' You know, what do you say?" Rock adds.
Chris Rock is one of the many Hollywood celebrities who publicly endorse Barack Obama. He, however, couldn't attend Obama's presidential inauguration on Tuesday afternoon, January 20 since he "got a movie premiering at Sundance."
