“It’s been a weird year for comedy,” Chris continued. “We lost Robin, we lost Joan, and we kind of lost Cosby.”
Chris looked up to the comedy legend with a lot of respect, as did many others, but that respect has now been shattered and it feels like Bill is gone.

Chris also praised the late Joan, calling her a “great person” and “underrated comedian.” “Who the hell’s funneir than Joan Rivers?” Answer: no one!
As for Robin’s tragic death, Chris said that “comedians kill themselves.”
“Talk to 100 comedians this week, everybody knows somebody who killed themselves. I mean, we always say ignorance is bliss. Well, if so, what’s the opposite? Some form of misery. Being a comedian, 80 percent of the job is just you notice s***, which is a trait of schizophrenics too. You notice things people don’t notice.”
