chris rock falls behind other comedians on broadway

Congratulations, John Leguizamo! You've come A LONG way since American Buffalo!

Last week, John brought in some very solid #'s with Ghetto Klown, which sold 77% of possible seats, and brought in nearly $350,000.

Robin Williams' comedy Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo sold 73.4% of possible seats, but brought in a gross of nearly $460,000.

Chris Rock's The Motherf*cker With the Hat didn't fare quite so well, with only 66.4% of possible seats filled, and a less-than-impressive $239,000 gross for the week.

Cheer up, Chris! Things can always turn around!

Have U seen any of these comedians on Broadway? If so, what did U think of their performances?

    I've seen both Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo and The Motherf**ker with the Hat. I honestly didn't love either of them. Robin Williams and Chris Rock both have more of supporting roles in the shows, and the shows are a lot more serious than I expected, based on the stars in them. Neither of the shows were terrible or anything, but they just weren't memorable for me. How to Succeed with Daniel Radcliffe, on the other hand, was excellent.

    239K isn't impressive? Shoot id love to rake in 239K for a weeks worth of work..LOL

    You gotta admit, the title of Chris Rock's show is off-putting and kinda ridiculous.
    Just like "F@#!ing A" a few years ago.
    If you want to be memorable, then be accessible.

    Keep in mind that The Motherf**ker with the Hat is still in previews, meaning the show hasn't officially opened so obviously it is going to have a smaller gross. On the other hand, Bengal Tiger just opened this past week and, like most shows, sells out the first few performances. If you're going to report all these numbers, at least put them into context for everyone.

    Saw it last night. I was a little disappointed. Individually each actor seemed to know their part but the writing was so bad and the ending was terrible. I expected more from a star studded cast. No one wants to see Chris Rock so serious.
