Watch Chris Rock and Tracy Morgan harmonize, Paul Simon rap at Too Many Stars benefit

Posted on

Nothing lights up the telethon phone lines like the dulcet harmonies of folk icons Simon and Garfunkel. Or, perhaps, the pitch-nasty, Prince-quoting yodels of “Simon” and “Garfunkel”—otherwise known as Chris Rock in a cableknit turtleneck, and Tracy Morgan in a ‘Funkel fro wig.

The two comedians were joined by the actual Paul Simon onstage at last night’s Night of Too Many Stars autism fundraiser for an ear-burning take on his “Scarborough Fair,” before Simon offered his own shuffling version of Snoop’s “Gin and Juice.”

Not sure I’m a huge fan of the “making the olds say dirty sh– is HI-larious” school of comedy, but it’s for a good cause, yes? I mean, at least they didn’t trot out Betty White to rappin’-granny her way through “Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta.”
