Chris Rock is back telling jokes after testing positive for COVID-19 last month.

“I’m back from the dead! I had COVID. I had motherf–king COVID. Goddamnit,” he said at the opening night of musician Robert Glasper’s “Robtober” residency at the legendary Blue Note Jazz Club on Sunday.

Rock and comedian pal Dave Chappelle surprised Glasper and concertgoers when “they just showed up unannounced, and introduced him,” an insider told Page Six.

In September, Rock urged his fans to “get vaccinated” after learning he’d tested positive for the virus. “Trust me, you don’t want this,” he tweeted.

But at Glasper’s show, he was able to laugh again, and the comedic duo even found humor in his COVID-19 experience.

“It wasn’t quite as hard as being black, but it was close… That’s why everyone’s trying to avoid it man,” Rock quipped.

He then revealed, “I think I got it on this Civil Rights movie.”

“That’s a noble way to get COVID,” Chappelle responded.

Our insider told us: “Everyone was cracking up watching them.”

Jeffrey Wright, Hill Harper and Talib Kweli — who was celebrating his birthday — were in the audience. Kweli also joined the comics on stage, we’re told.

After the concert, Kweli, Rock and Chappelle met up with Michael Che, Busta Rhymes and Kanye West at The Stand Comedy Club, where they further celebrated Kweli’s birthday, as well as Chappelle’s new Netflix special, we’re told.

“[Kanye] came alone… no security,” a spy told us.

Photographer and designer Mathieu Bitton snapped shots of the group, and we hear Rock and Che sang “Happy Birthday” from the stage.

“Birthday party was magical… legendary night… thank you,” Kweli captioned an Instagram post.
