Chris Rock Accused Of Stealing Jokes From Aziz Ansari

After the joke stealing debacles caused by Dane Cook and Carlos Mencia, Chris Rock may be the next target of the Internet comedy police after cracking a joke similar to Aziz Ansari.

Rock appeared on the Aug. 9 episode of the The Daily Show to promote his new movie, 2 Days in New York. During the interview, he mentioned that struggling to come up with new material is only a problem for comedians, while singers like Sting can play “Roxanne” forever with no problem.

Ansari made a similar quip during a July 11 interview on Sirius radio over a month before Rock’s appearance. The only difference was that the song example Ansari provided was “Every Breath You Take.”

Even more interesting, Ansari’s complaints began with a story about telling Rock how he felt after his tenth year as a standup while both were trying out material at NYC’s Comedy Cellar. Watch below via The Huffington Post.
