I’m still kind of processing what happened. So, at some point I’ll talk about that s—t. And it will be serious and funny.” When an audience member said, “F—k Will Smith,” he refused to take the bait. Instead he said, “I’m going to tell some jokes. It’s nice to just be out.”

“Ego Death World Tour” is Chris’ first time on the road in five years.
