Chris Rock Tickets
Every struggling standup comic dreams of one day having a name synonymous with comedy, but few have managed to do so with greater success than Chris Rock. In recognition of his influential role, Chris Rock was presented with 'The Comedian,' TCF's 2nd annual legacy award. Rock follows in the esteemed footsteps of TCF's first recipient, Jerry Seinfeld.
Chris Rock is not only one of the smartest people on the planet, but he is also one of the funniest. Chris' early career aspirations fluctuated between boxing and humor; fitting, since his early childhood heroes included Sugar Ray Leonard and Eddie Murphy. He was smart enough to stray from boxing, knowing that he was no physical fighter, but could succeed in putting people in stitches -- with some doses of laughter.
And make people laugh he did. One notable person in the audience of an open-mic routine while working the New York's Comedy Strip was none other than Eddie Murphy. That chance encounter changed Rock's life, but one way or another, he was destined to go places. Let's just say that the Chris Rock hour has only started. Sit back and enjoy.
