Rock Calls On Funnymen To Help With Oscar Gags

Subscribe to Chris Rock alerts

Funnyman Chris Rock has called in some expert help as he prepares to host The Oscars for the first time next month (FEB05) - comedy masterminds JERRY Seinfeld and Jay Leno.

Rock, Seinfeld and Leno met up with American comics Garry Shandling and Bill Maher to pay their respects to late TV icon Johnny Carson at Carson's favourite Hollywood restaurant, DAN TANA'S, earlier this week (begs24JAN05).

But the night of mourning quickly turned into a round of quickfire jokes as Rock's friends reportedly helped him create his opening monologue for the big show on 27 February (05).
