Chris Rock's Net Worth Revealed: The Complete Breakdown Here

What is Chris Rock's net worth? All details here!  

Since the viral Oscar slap at the 94th Oscar when actor Will Smith smacked Chris Rock for mocking his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, the internet hasn't stopped obsessing over the parties involved in the altercation. While Will Smith, who took home his first Oscar that day, is a world-renowned star and doesn't require an introduction, that leaves Rock to be the lesser-known party here, who you might need an acquaintance with.  

Christopher Julius Rock was born on February 7, 1965, in Andrews, South California. He began his standup-comedy career in the early 80s, doing gigs at Catch, a Rising Star comedy club, and before Rock could launch a full-fledged comic career, he started landing roles in movies. Chris became a celebrated figure as the cast member of Saturday Night Live from 1990 to 1993, and by the early 2000s, he was one of the best in business, with three Grammys, four Emmys, and one Golden-Globe nomination under his belt.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Chris has an estimated net worth of $60 million, a staggering amount which is all thanks to Rock's multi-faceted career and his grit to experiment with new ventures.

Rock's first special, Chris Rock: Tamborine, was released in February 2018; it earned him a Grammy nomination for the best comedy album. The special marked Chris's first comeback in 20 years. As per sources, HBO, which produced Rock's five remarkable specials in the past, also made a bid to the comedian but lost the deal to Netflix.
