No-holds-barred comic Chris Rock is currently starring on Broadway in a gritty play called The Motherf**ker With the Hat.
It’s a title that’s simultaneously raunchy and coy, and according to today’s Michael Riedel column in the Post, the producers originally thought it would work for them as a selling point.
But it’s backfired because they can’t get the title out there!
Chris can barely say it on talk shows when he’s promoting it because even with the asterisks, it’s still too dirty!
So what should he call it to help ticket sales?
“The Motherfucker With the Hat”?
“The Mofo With the Hat”?
“Yo Mama With the Hat”?
“Your Mother Sucks Cocks in Hell”?
“Mother Courage and Her Children”?
