“With a career spanning more than three decades, Rock has enjoyed ongoing success in both film and television as a comedian, actor, writer, producer and director. In 2014 he led the ensemble cast of ‘Top Five,’ a critically acclaimed comedy feature that he also wrote and directed,” states a Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority webpage.
“His feature acting credits include the ‘Grown Ups’ and ‘Madagascar’ franchises, ‘Head of State,’ ‘Nurse Betty,’ ‘CB4,’ ‘Death at a Funeral,’ ‘I Think I Love My Wife,’ ‘2 Days in New York,’ ‘Dogma’ and ‘New Jack City.’
“His television work includes serving as executive producer, writer and narrator for the series ‘Everybody Hates Chris,’ which ran from 2005 to 2009, and as a cast member on ‘Saturday Night Live’ from 1989-1993,” continues the site.
