Chris Rock

by Diane Cook

For more than 20 years, comedian Chris Rock has skewered America's sacred cows with abandon. With foul-mouthed wit and a talent for being outrageous, Chris has forged a hugely successful career on stage and in the movies. His HBO specials Bring the Pain and Bigger and Blacker set new standards for 21st-century comedy; blockbusters like Madagascar and its sequel have proved him to be a consistent draw and have earned him millions of dollars. But Chris Rock's rise to fame has not been without setbacks: Box-office bombs and an Oscar-night controversy are stumbles in a varied career that continues to draw the attention of fans around the world. Through it all, Chris has remained committed to the charitable and political causes in which he believes. This new biography offers an in-depth look at a comedy legend in the making-what makes him tick and where his extraordinary career will go next.
