Get ready to laugh out loud as Chris Rock makes his return to the stage with Netflix's first-ever live comedy special. The comedian has once again proved that he is a master of his craft, with witty jokes and hilarious one-liners that will leave you in stitches...

One particular moment that had everyone talking was when Rock addressed the infamous incident at last year's Academy Awards ceremony when Will Smith slapped him onstage after a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith's shaved head. Rock joked, "Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face," adding a humorous touch to an otherwise serious situation. But that wasn't all - Rock also took aim at Snoop Dogg doing commercials, assuring fans that he loves Snoop and isn't trying to diss him. However, he couldn't resist taking a dig at Smith without naming him, saying, "The last thing I need is another mad rapper, right?" The audience erupted into applause as Rock continued with his comedic routine.

Towards the end of the show, Rock delved deeper into the Oscars incident and made light of it by joking about getting "smacked by Suge Smith." He also poked fun at Smith over the headline-making "entanglement" drama he had with wife, Jada, during their Red Table Talk episode together. Throughout his set, Rock name-checked various celebrities, including Serena Williams, Elon Musk, Beyoncé - and even O.J. Simpson. His witty observations on pop culture are sure to have you laughing along with him throughout the show.

Although Rock hasn't spoken much about the incident since last year's Oscars, it's clear from this performance that he hasn't lost his sense of humor. While Smith has apologized for his behavior and resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as a result of the incident, it seems like everything is water under the bridge now. So if you're looking for something to lift your spirits and put a smile on your face, be sure to check out Chris Rock: Selective Outrage on Netflix. You won't regret it!
