The Brooklyn-raised comedian has garnered four Emmy Awards, three Grammy Awards, is listed as number five on Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time” and was honored in 2006 with HBO’s esteemed “Comedian Award.” After gaining early success as a stand-up comedian, Rock joined the cast of NBC’s Saturday Night Live in 1989.


With a career spanning more than three decades, Rock has enjoyed ongoing success in both film and television as a comedian, actor, writer, producer and director.  In 2014 he led the ensemble cast of “Top Five,” a critically acclaimed comedy feature that he also wrote and directed.  In 2009 Rock ventured into the documentary world as a writer and producer of Good Hair and in 2014 he executive produced Eat Drink Laugh: The Story of the Comic Strip, a documentary recounting the history of one of New York’s most famous comedy venues.  His feature acting credits include the Grown Ups and Madagascar franchises, Head of State, Nurse Betty, CB4, Death at a Funeral, I Think I Love My Wife, 2 Days in New York, Dogma and New Jack City.


His television work includes serving as executive producer, writer and narrator for the series Everybody Hates Chris, which ran from 2005 to 2009, and as a cast member on Saturday Night Live from 1989 to 1993.


This summer, Rock will be reuniting with Adam Sandler in production of Netflix’s original movie The Week Of. He will also executive produce BET’s newest late-night talk show, The Rundown with Robin Thede.
