CHRIS ROCK kicked off his standup tour in Boston last night, and the crowd met him with a standing ovation. For 5 minutes. After they quieted down, he asked them, quote, "How was your weekend?"

Then he announced that he was not going to talk about what the hell happened at the Oscars. 

"I don't have a bunch of [stuff] about what happened, so if you came to hear that, I have a whole show I wrote before this weekend, and I'm still kind of processing what happened."

"So at some point I'll talk about that [stuff]. And it'll be serious, and it'll be funny."

 Later on in his set, he said, quote, "Except for some other pretty weird things, life is pretty good right now."

 He got another standing ovation at the end of the show. One show attendee, upon exiting the theatre, said Chris's performance was a C+. But that's just one man's opinion.

Chris Rock is coming to the Paramount in Seattle in October.
