Who Is Chris Rock?
Chris Rock is an American standup comedian, actor, director, producer, and singer. When he was nineteen, he began performing standup comedy in small clubs in New York City. When Chris presented his act at a nightclub, Eddie Murphy noticed him.
Murphy offers Rock his first movie role in the movie ‘Beverly Hills Cop II.’ As a cast member of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ he got his first significant break. He expanded his repertoire by writing the scripts for CB4 and starring in Big Ass Jokes for HBO.
