Chris Rock killed it at New Brunswick's Stress Factory this weekend
Ticket holders for comic Joe Matarese woke up to an email Friday morning that read 'Event Cancelled.' The email went on to explain why: Chris Rock was dropping in for 2 shows that night and 2 shows Saturday night at The Stress Factory. Matarese ticket holders could call the club at 10 AM if they wanted to upgrade and continue to attend with Rock as the headliner.
We did. Saturday night we sat front row center in front of Chris. And he killed. Warmed up by 2 funny openers, Rock took the stage for an hour of completely new stuff in preparation for a new stand-up special. Look forward to Chris in the near future with riffs on the location of the new Freedom Tower, big celebs like him giving cash to the homeless, and Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Seems MH370 is in Camden..
Leaving, we snapped a pic of the scene outside as fans waited to see the last show. Church Street? Closed.
