Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Despite the massive fame of his older brother Chris Rock, comedian Tony Rock achieved quite an impressive amount of success himself, totally on his own. Rock was born into a large family in Brooklyn, New York in 1974. With seven brothers and two sisters, Rock's crowded home life gave him a great number of experiences to draw on when he became attracted to comedy in his teens. Though his brother Chris was nine years his senior and had already entered the business by this time, Tony was determined to succeed on his own merit. He began performing regularly, slowly honing his act and attracting his own fan base.

More roles would follow, including a co-starring role on the sitcom "Mann and Wife" (Bounce TV, 2015-). Meanwhile, Rock began hosting a weekly comedy showcase called "All Def Comedy" (HBO, 2017-).

The largely African American event soon caught the attention of HBO, which offered to turn the showcase into a TV series with Rock continuing as host. As that project developed, Rock took on yet another TV role, this time on the comedy series "By the Book" (CBS, 2018-).
