Chris Rock Loves Making Fun Of Todd Bridges

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Chris Rock created the CW sitcom Everybody Hates Chris, but he really loves Todd Bridges.

Just ask Bridges himself, since he’s guest-starring on the show on Monday (Jan. 22).

He was excited to take the role because it gave him a chance to finally meet Rock, who has been ribbing Bridges in his stand- up act for years.

Says Bridges: “It’s flattering that Rock jokes about me. I’m a big fan of him too, so coming face to face was cool.”

Bridges thanked Rock for plugging him into his comedy routines, but told him one particular joke ended up confusing Bridges’ own kids when they heard it.

The joke happened at last year’s Kid’s Choice Awards when Rock won the “Wannabe” lifetime achievement award and joked that Bridges would win the award next time.

Says Bridges: “My kids were so confused, I had to explain Rock was just kidding like 20 times. It was pretty funny.”
