Chris Rock will perform in Atlantic City this weekend

Chris Rock will bring his Ego Death World Tour to Atlantic City, April 2.

Less than a week after joking about Jada Pinkett Smith at The Oscars — and being hit onstage by her husband, Will Smith, because of it — Chris Rock will perform standup comedy at the Event Center at Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, April 2 at 7 and 10 p.m.

I imagine he may have something to say about the Oscars incident, as well.

It won’t be his first time back on a stage. His Ego Death World Tour also comes to The Wilbur in Boston, March 30-31 and April 1.

Rock will return to New Jersey for double bills with Kevin Hart at the Prudential Center in Newark, July 22; and the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, July 24.

About a month ago on Instagram, Rock described the Ego Death World Tour as “all new material introspective very personal and very funny . Can’t wait to show you.”

The tour originally had been scheduled to begin in Atlantic City but then the Boston shows were added.
