The son of a truck driver and teacher, Chris Rock is most known for his uninhibited stand up routines that pull no punches. He was originally discovered by Eddie Murphy at the age of 18 at a New York comedy club. After bit parts in a few movies, he joined the cast of Saturday Night Live. In 1996, Rock did an HBO comedy special, Bring in the Pain, which earned him two Emmys. That led to more high profile movie roles, including St. Bilko, Lethal Weapon 4, Nurse Betty, Dogma and the voice of Marty in Madagascar. His sitcom, Everybody Hates Chris, was a spoof on Everybody Loves Raymond.
