Chris Rock is an American comedian, actor, and screenwriter with a net worth of $70 million. Rock was born in South Carolina and raised in Brooklyn, New York; his career began at the famous New York comedy club Catch a Rising Star, and he was a fixture on the New York stand-up circuit for several years before gaining national exposure. He joined the cast of Saturday Night Live in 1990, and in 1991 released his first comedy album, Born Suspect; two years later, he left SNL and appeared instead on its primetime rival, In Living Color. Rock premiered his first HBO special, Big Ass Jokes, in 1994, but it was the follow-up, 1996's Bring the Pain, that earned him two Emmy Awards and a reputation as one of the best comedians in America. He later released several more albums and HBO specials, and in 2007 was tapped to host the Academy Awards. Additionally, his success in stand-up led to roles in films, including Dogma, Beverly Hills Ninja, and The Longest Yard, as well as an Executive Producer role in the semi-autobiographical, Emmy-winning TV series Everybody Hates Chris. Rock married Malaak Compton-Rock since 1996; the couple have two daughters and live in Alpine, New Jersey. Rock was chosen as the 5th Greatest Stand-Up Comedian of All Time by Comedy Central. He has won four Emmy Awards for his comedy specials and three Grammy Awards for his comedy albums.
Christopher Julius "Chris" Rock III (born February 7, 1965) is an American comedian, actor, screenwriter, television producer, film producer, and director. He was voted in the US as the 5th greatest stand-up comedian of all time by Comedy Central. He was also voted in the UK as the 9th greatest stand-up comic on Channel 4's 100 Greatest Stand-Ups in 2007, and again in the updated 2010 list as the 8th greatest stand-up comic.
Rock was born in Andrews, South Carolina. Shortly after his birth, his parents moved to Crown Heights, Brooklyn, New York. A few years later, they relocated and settled in the working-class area of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. His mother, Rosalie (n'ee Tingman), was a teacher and social worker for the mentally handicapped; his father, Julius Rock, was a former truck driver and newspaper deliveryman. Julius died in 1988 after ulcer surgery. His younger brothers Tony, Kenny and Jordan are also in the entertainment business. His older half-brother, Charles, died in 2006 after a long struggle with alcoholism. Rock has said that he was influenced by the performing style of his paternal grandfather, Allen Rock, a preacher.
Rock was bused to schools in predominately white neighborhoods of Brooklyn where he endured bullying and beatings from white students. As he got older, the bullying became worse and Rock's parents pulled him out of James Madison High School. He decided to drop out of high school altogether and later received a GED. Rock worked menial jobs at various fast-food restaurants.
Rock began doing stand-up comedy in 1984 in New York City's Catch a Rising Star. He slowly rose up the ranks of the comedy circuit in addition to earning bit roles in the film I'm Gonna Git You Sucka and the TV series Miami Vice. Upon seeing his act at a nightclub, Eddie Murphy befriended and mentored the aspiring comic. Murphy gave Rock his first film role in Beverly Hills Cop II.
George Carlin has been probably the biggest influence for him. Other ma
