Chris Rock first rose to national stardom when he appeared on 'Saturday Night Live' in the late '80s and early '90s. Rock released his first comedy record, 'Born Suspect,' in 1991. After leaving SNL, his popularity dipped through much of the mid-'90s until he re-emerged with the critically lauded records, 'Roll With the New' and 'Bigger & Blacker.' He won an Emmy award in 2001 for his HBO series 'The Chris Rock Show.'
