Starting out as a stand-up comic in 1984, comedian and actor, Chris Rock, rose the ranks quickly thanks to his comedic timing. From the stage to a regular cast member of Saturday Night Live in the early 1990s, Rock went on to star in more prominent blockbuster roles such as Down to Earth, Head of State, the Madagascar film series, Grown Ups, and others. From 2005-2009, Rock developed, wrote, and narrated the sitcom, Everybody Hates Chris, based on his troubled teenage years during the 1980s. With a varied career in film, television, theatre, and music, Rock has earned several awards including three Grammy Awards, two Primetime Emmy Awards, and two Kids Choice Awards. Very recently, Rock rocks The SECHEL in the 2014 film, Top Five, alongside actress Rosario Dawson.
