This weekend: Tony Rock LIVE Aug 24-27. Find your seats at pittsburgh.improv.com #pittsburghimprov #tonyrock Born in the same Brooklyn NY hospital where most of his seven brothers and one sister found their way into the world Tony Rock was born laughing. He grew up in one of the toughest neighborhoods in New York and developed a natural knack for entertaining. “On a daily basis I’d see a dozen characters (and I emphasize the word characters). One moment I’d be fighting for my life. The next minute I’d be laughing hysterically. There’s a lot of drama in the city and I took it all in.” Tony has been performing for years and he has gained a reputation as a young star in the making. The Hollywood Reporter recently picked him as one of the hot young talents to come out of New York. Tony's stand-up comedy talents were showcased in the recent revival of “Def Comedy Jam” on HBO.
Our sincerest condolences to the Lewis family as we mourn the passing of filmmaker, comedian, & philanthropist Jerry Lewis. From his success in movies, television, and the Broadway stage -- to the billions he helped raise for muscular dystrophy, we look back on his time with us with great admiration and endless respect, RIP.
