Tony Rock: On Solid Ground Because Of His Dad
Funnyman Tony Rock has been in comedy specials, sitcoms, hosted his own show and made appearances in countless movies, not to mention he is the younger brother of comedian Chris Rock. You would think that in the world of stand-up comedy, Tony would look up to his brother for guidance, which he did a little bit, but it was another man who truly inspired Tony to go towards his dreams, Tony & Chris’ dad, Julius Rock.
During his teenage years, Tony’s dad died and it completely left him feeling like he didn’t know what to do. But it was during his time of reflection that Tony started to remember some of the things his dad taught him and they carried over to adulthood. Now, Tony runs a foundation in honor of the man who laid the foundation for him.
