BORGATA’S EVENT CENTER // 7 P.M. AND 10 P.M. FRIDAY, NOV. 24

WHO IS HE: Comedian Chris Rock began doing stand-up in the mid 1980s at New York City’s famous club “Catch a Rising Star.” The Brooklyn native was mentored by Eddie Murphy who gave Rock a role in the film “Beverly Hills Cop II.” In 1990 Rock became a cast member of “Saturday Night Live” alongside Chris Farley, Adam Sandler and David Spade. Rock’s 1996 HBO special “Bring the Pain” helped establish him as one of the funniest and most relevant comedians of the decade. For three seasons between 1997 and 2000 Rock hosted his own HBO talk show “The Chris Rock Show,” which won three Emmy Awards. Rock hosted the Academy Awards ceremony in 2005, the same year that his sitcom “Everybody Hates Chris” debuted.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Perhaps the greatest stand-up comedian of his generation, Chris Rock has had plenty of success in film and television, but onstage in front of a crowd he’s an absolute master. Rock’s perfect delivery and timing — along with a willingness to discuss just about any subject in his act — has kept him at the top of the heap of great comics. On Friday his Total Blackout Tour returns to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for two shows that are a must-see. 

WHAT’S NEW: In 2018 Rock will star in the Adam Sandler film “The Week Of.”
