Thursday, the comedian revealed to the show’s host Jimmy Fallon that he will kick off a new stand-up tour this fall.

He also noted that Kanye West helped him come up with the name of the tour.


“The other day, we were hanging out and he gave me that name,” Rock said. “We were listening to records or whatever and he said ‘black plague,’ and I was like ‘Can I use that?’”

No word yet on tour stops or when tickets will go on sale.

Rock is also slated to host the BET Awards later this month.

Stay tuned for updates on the Black Plague tour.
