Here’s Why Chris Rock Once Tried to Get Cardi B Her Own Comedy TV Show

Cardi B, comedy star? Chris Rock stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday (Sept. 24) to dish about how he once tried to get the rapper her own comedy show.

“Cardi B I saw on some, like, YouTube thing or whatever. Again, my kids show me this Cardi B girl, and she didn’t have a record out or anything,” the star explained to Jimmy Fallon. “And I was like, ‘OK we should go show it.’ I’m not even gonna say what network but…So I went me, Cardi B and her management, you know, to kind of like get a show going.”

While the idea for the show never came to fruition, Rock revealed that “WAP” rapper did tell him about her musical ambitions at the time. His response? “Yeah, yeah, yeah, that’s good. Anyway. You’re a comedy star.”

Of course, before she became one of the most successful rappers in the music industry, Cardi tried her hand at reality television, starring for two seasons on VH1’s Love and Hip Hop from 2015 to 2017, where she became known for her quick wit and hilarious confessional interviews. Just three months after her final season finished airing, the rapper unleashed her breakthrough single “Bodak Yellow” on the world and the rest, as they say, is history.

“I think Cardi B’s the funniest woman, or one of the funniest people. You know, it’s like Chappelle, Cardi,” Rock concluded. “Like in the standings right now, like who are the funniest people in the world? Cardi’s right up there. She’s neck and neck with Bill Burr. Like, she’s good, man…Cardi can hang with anybody.”
