Chris Rock by David Robson

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.
