Com­edy leg­end rolls into Toronto

Thornhill Post - - Arts -

When the Novem­ber rains turn to snow, city res­i­dents clam­our for a lit­tle comedic cheer. And who could de­liver bet­ter than one of the planet’s top standups, Chris Rock. Yes, he’s an ac­tor, film­maker, di­rec­tor and much more, but first and fore­most this man can tell a joke, hav­ing slowly risen through the com­edy ranks since he first sur­faced on the scene more than three decades ago. He broke through to be­come an in­ter­na­tional star af­ter ap­pear­ing on Satur­day Night Live along­side Chris Far­ley, Adam San­dler and David Spade. Soon, there were film and TV roles, and Rock so­lid­i­fied his spot as one of the finest co­me­di­ans of his gen­er­a­tion. Rock ap­pears at the Air Canada Cen­tre as part of his To­tal Black­out Tour on Nov. 11.
