Grammy and Emmy Award winning comedian, actor, director, writer and producer, Chris Rock's  The Total Blackout Tour 2018 marks the acclimated comedian’s first U.K. tour in ten years.

Lauded by peers and critics alike, Chris Rock is one of our generation’s strongest comedic voices. As an actor, director, producer and writer he has created many pivotal pop culture moments. With a career spanning more than three decades, Chris Rock is a true icon whose star shines even brighter.

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.  In 2009 Rock ventured into the documentary world as a writer and producer of “Good Hair,” and in 2014 he executive produced “Eat Drink Laugh: The Story of the Comic Strip,” a documentary recounting the history of one of New York’s most famous comedy venues.  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.

This summer, Rock will be reuniting with Adam Sandler in production of Netflix’s original movie, “The Week Of.” He will also executive produce BET’s newest late-night talk show, “The Rundown with Robin Thede.”
