JB Smoove Calls Chris Rock “This Generations Richard Pryor”

Yesterday for a stop by Hot 97, JB Smoove spoke with the morning show team to rundown his latest endeavors. Apart of his conversation, JB discussed Larry David and Curb Your Enthusiasm, his 50th Birthday Bash, Kevin Hart, and Chris Rock at the Oscars. As everyone in the studio went on to talk about the Oscars, JB went on to rank Rock’s current position in comedy while praising his work.

To me, he’s one of the smartest, impactful comedians of our era… In my eyes he’s our Pryor. He can take controversy and find a way to spin it. If anyone can take this controversy and do it in a smart way… and get the word out is Chris Rock

The Oscars are weeks away.
