Chris Rock jokes he has 'my hearing back' after Will Smith Oscar slap, won't talk 'until I get paid'

"I'm OK, I have a whole show and I'm not talking about that until I get paid. Life is good. I got my hearing back," Rock said.

Rock's show comes days after things took a turn at the Oscars and Smith slapped Rock after the comedian made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith

Both Smith and his wife have spoken out since the incident, but Rock has remained mostly silent.

On Friday, the Academy's Board of Governors blocked Smith from its events for 10 years.

The incident happened right before Rock was scheduled to kick off his "Ego Death" tour with six shows at The Wilbur in Boston.

Tickets immediately began to sell out for scheduled performances, including Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.

Tickets for shows following the Wilbur dates were initially going for $51 to $71, but resellers started listing them for exponentially higher rates.

During his March 30 show at The Wilbur, Rock only briefly addressed the slap during his show, saying he was “still kind of processing what happened.
