Chris Rock returns to the WaMu Theater at Madison Square Garden after performing 3 nights at the venue in 2004 and just playing a SOLD OUT show on this past New Year's Eve at Madison Square Garden! Lauded by awards and critics alike, Rock is one of our generation's strongest comedic voices and was most recently honored with HBO's esteemed "Comedian Award." The Brooklyn-raised comedian has garnered three Emmys Awards, three Grammy® Awards and has seen his former talk show become one of HBO's highest-rated and most talked-about programs.
Rock currently serves as both co-creator and narrator of the hit television series Everybody Hates Chris, co-starred as the voice of Mooseblood the Mosquito in Jerry Seinfeld's animated Bee Movie which came out this year and recently starred in I Think I Love My Wife, which he also wrote and directed.
Emmy and Grammy Award-winning Chris Rock has been hailed internationally as one of stand-up comedy’s heavyweights. The release of his forthcoming “best-of” collection, entitled CHEESE AND CRACKERS: THE GREATEST BITS (Geffen Records) only further cements Rock as comedy’s ultimate funnyman. The first ever compilation album from Rock’s infamous comedy repertoire hits stores in the United States on December 18th, and internationally on January 21st, 2008.
CHEESE AND CRACKERS: THE GREATEST BITS is being released on the heels of Rock’s first stand-up tour in over three years – NO APOLOGIES – that will kick off with a New Year’s Eve date at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. Featuring all new material, in January, Rock will head to the United Kingdom where he will perform for his first time ever overseas. Rock immediately sold out his original set of 2008 U.K. tour dates, and to satiate the fervent demand, an additional week-long overseas leg was added.
The NO APOLOGIES tour will resume in the U.S. in February, continuing through May. The tour will include stops in Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Seattle, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Atlantic City, a trio of shows at Los Angeles’ Gibson Amphitheatre in April, and an additional round of dates at MSG in New York. Dates are currently being added for Australia and South Africa, where Rock will also play for the first time, after the first leg of the NO APOLOGIES U.S. tour ends in May.
