Chris Rock might be busy preparing to host “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, but he still made time to drop by “The Tonight Show” studio to help former “SNL”-er Jimmy Fallon with a list of the year’s top Halloween costumes.
In honor of Rock’s upcoming film — and perhaps to distance themselves from David Letterman’s signature Top 10 lists — they settled on a “Top Five” for costumes.
But as soon as Rock started the list with “Slutty Cat,” you had an idea where this was going to go. The comedian absolutely sold the silliness of the list and the costumes listed with his over-the-top presentation.
“Slutty Cat” was followed by “Slutty Nurse,” but then things went a little weird. By the time he got to No. 1, Rock had doubled down on the theme of the night. Skip the pretense and just go for it.
Rock writes, directs and stars in “Top Five.” The film costars Rosario Dawson, Gabrielle Union, Kevin Hart, Genevieve Angelson, Rachel Feinstein, Sherri Shepherd and J.B. Smoove, and features appearances by a slew of comedy greats including Jerry Seinfeld, Doug Stanhope, Adam Sandler, Cedric the Entertainer and Tracy Morgan. Paramount Pictures will release the film to theaters on Dec. 5.
Chris Rock can next be seen hosting “Saturday Night Live,” airing at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC. “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
