Chris Rock's Younger Brother Jordan Rock is Coming to Improv San Antonio


  • Courtesy
Stand-up comedian Jordan Rock, younger brother of comedy great Chris Rock, is learning how to hold his own in the industry. In the past, he’s played off the fact that no one really knows his name. “I’m Jordan Rock,” he said on stage at an L.A. comedy club last year as reported by the New York Times. “You guys have probably never heard of me. Because I’m the Solange of my family.” (Note: Their brother, Tony, does stand-up, too.)

Baby Rock may never be as famous as his uber-famous brother, but the 27-year-old is taking it one performance at a time. “I honestly have nothing but good problems,” he tweeted last month to his 406 followers. For example, he was a recurring character on the Netflix romantic comedy series Love, co-created by Judd Apatow, which premiered its third and final season earlier this year. He is also starring in his second Netflix original film, The After Party, which premieres August 24. Truth be told: It can’t be any worse than the Netflix movie Chris made with Adam Sandler this year (The Week Of), so maybe Jordan will finally earn some bragging rights over his big bro.
