Eddie and Charlie Murphy. Brian and Dennis Regan. The UK’s Jonathan and Paul Ross. The Smothers Brothers. The Sklar Brothers.

Given the evidence, it would seem that comedic talent runs in the family, and Tony Rock (younger sibling of Chris) is no exception. The face of both TV One’s The Funny Spot and MyNetworkTV’s The Tony Rock Project, the Howard Stern, Craig Kilborn, and Def Comedy Jam vet doesn’t sling True Hollywood Stories-esque gossip about, nor does he trade on familial fame. Instead, Tony has made his own name via cutting, high-energy observations about race, class, and sex, with a bevy of offbeat impressions thrown in for good measure.
