Chris Rock has given his first stand-up show since his altercation with Will Smith at this year's Oscar ceremony.

Rock gave a show in Boston on Wednesday night, and started his show in typical Rock fashion, asking the crowd "What's up, Boston? How was your weekend?!"

The snippet from the set was leaked to Variety, which published the clip on Instagram on Wednesday night.

The comedian briefly alluded to the altercation between himself and Smith at the Oscars, where he was on the receiving end of a slap from Will Smith.

Rock said he was "still processing" what happened.

Rock indicated that he had written that night's set before the events at this years Oscars, telling the crowd "I don't have a bunch of s**t about what happened, so if you came to hear that, I have a whole show I wrote before this weekend."

"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!" he said.

An audience member shouted "f**k Will Smith" to which Rock replied "I'm going to tell some jokes, it's nice to be out!" before continuing with his planned set.

Ticket sales for Rock's gigs have reportedly skyrocketed since the Oscars.

To his end, Rock declined to press charges against Will Smith after the altercation according to the LAPD.

Sources told Entertainment Weekly that Rock's joke about Jada Pinkett Smith - to which Will Smith took great offence - was not in his script.

The source told Entertainment Weekly "with a live show and with comedians, there are always jokes that are not in script. There's that idea of shock and then trying to figure out what just happened and going from there."
