Chris Rock Predicts OJ Simpson’s Almost Book Title

This was the very first sketch on the very first episode of HBO’s “Chris Rock Show” from about ten years ago.

Yet another example of how and public figures creative work can resurface via the power of YouTube; this clip is a friendly reminder of how completely outrageous the celeb-tells-all book could have been.

I will admit the first forty seconds seems unbearable – mostly due to the decade old humor. But, is it at all possible that the creator of the Simpson book pulled the title from this brilliant comedy sketch? I’m guessing not, but Rock’s humor was clearly ahead of its time.

The Rock Show, which featured the popular comedian’s interviews with celebrities and politicians, gained critical acclaim during its three-season run on HBO.
