The American comedian Chris Rock has been one of the biggest names in international comedy for decades now. Since he began his comedy tours and stints on Saturday Night Live in the mid-1980s Rock has been an amazing entertainer, popular for his controversial subject matter and caustic wit.
As one of the 1980s ‘Bad Boys of SNL’, Rock has consistently proven he can combine topical commentary with strong humour, both as a comedian and writer/producer. Case in point is his 1997–2000 TV spot The Chris Rock Show, which won a 1999 Emmy for Outstanding Writing.
One of Comedy's Biggest Stars
One of his peak productive periods was in the mid-2000s, when he’d reached a high point in movie and television exposure and achieved such a strong resonance with mainstream audiences that he was asked to host the 2005 Academy Awards, a performance that was expectedly irreverent and a lightning rod for criticism over his caustic style – the very same traits that have made him popular with his fans and on the comedy circuit.
At the same time he was in a range of films including You Don’t Mess With the Zohan, documentaries such as The N Word, voiceovers for productions including the Madagascar animated film series, and producing the semi-autobiographical (and both critically acclaimed and award-winning) TV show Everybody Hates Chris.
Chris Rock Current Work
In recent years Rock has kept a steady workload with TV guest spots and film work (notably the Grown Ups films and the critically acclaimed comedy feature Top Five), but has also mixed in more theatre productions and comedy tours, keeping himself as busy as ever. In February 2017, he’ll be taking his latest tour to Niagara Falls.

Tickets are already on sale, but won’t be around for much longer. It’s a rare opportunity for comedy aficionados to see, live and without restraint, one of the biggest and most influential comedians of the past thirty years.
