About Chris Rock
On February 7, 1965, Christopher Julius Rock was born in Andrews, South Carolina. His family soon relocated to Brooklyn, New York where they eventually settled in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Growing up there had its difficulties as he often encountered discrimination and bullying from white students while attending mostly white schools due to busing policies. This ultimately led him to drop out of school; however, he achieved his GED by working at fast-food restaurants.
In 1984, Rock made his stand-up comedy debut at the renowned club Catch a Rising Star in New York City and gradually gained notoriety as he performed. This recognition earned him some acting roles such as on “Miami Vice”. It was during this time that Eddie Murphy noticed Rock’s talent while watching him perform at a nightclub, leading to their friendship and mentorship of Rock by Murphy — resulting in his first film role being cast for “Beverly Hills Cop II” (1987).
