That means even in our finest hour, we had a crackhead onstage.” The audience erupts with the sort of amazed laughing scream that you only get at the moment when a major comedic star flares to life.

Theyʹre not going to trust you around the Happy Meals. Theyʹll send your ass to Hardeeʹs”). He silkily segues to drugs in general (the positive side of crack: “If youʹre up at the right hour, you can get a VCR for $1.50”). Then, with the crowd in the palm of his hand, Rock roars into the rest of the show on a high from that legal but rarefied drug called talent.
