Comedy icon Chris Rock is coming to Reno.

On Friday, Feb. 24, Rock headlines Reno Events Center, his fifth stop on The Total Blackout Tour, which kicked off on Valentine’s Day in North Carolina. The tour is Rock’s first in nine years and launched on the heels of an announcement stating the comedian would bring two stand-up specials to Netflix.

“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.

In addition to four Emmy Awards and three Grammy Awards wins, Rock is a New York Times best-selling author.

Tickets for the comedian’s performance range from $54.59 to $118.80, plus tax and fees. Purchase tickets and learn more online at

The show begins at 8 p.m., and the Reno Events Center is located at 400 N. Center Street.
