The Day I met

Chris Rock

Dave Hammond

"The day I met Chris Rock. Thought I would do something different today instead of a music star and go with a comedian and film actor I once had the honour to meet. He came out in June 2008 and I met him at a press conference held at Sun International's head office in Sandton. The man has done so much in the world of comedy and movies but is probably best remembered (by kids anyway) for the voice of Marty the Zebra in the Madagascar movies. This visit was just prior to the release of Madagascar 2 but he wasn't here to promote the movie he was due to do a show in Joburg later that night. Obviously with him being a comedian I remember the press conference was very light hearted and full of jokes. He was a very friendly guy and despite the clamour from local media to get photos with him he was very accommodating. No idea who took the picture but I do remember saying hi to then 5FM DJ Fresh an old colleague of mine at Solid Gold. As well as Darren Whackhead Simpson who was also present."
