Although Rock is yet to publicly discuss the event that occurred at the 92nd Oscars ceremony but has referred to it a bunch of times while on the road as a standup comic.
Once he wraps up his set, the packaged live show will then feature the post- show, titled The Show After the Show. NBA legend Kareem Abdul Jabbar, JB Smoove & others will headline this segment with Dana Carvey and David Spade hosting it. The pre- show will be hosted by Ronny Chieng.
