If youre interested in seeing Chris Rock today, stop reading and go buy your tickets. The comedian has already sold out one of his double-billed performances, and last we checked, the second one was following suit. Rock is easily this generations Bill Hicks, both in style and popularity. His biting social commentary doesnt spare anyone. On Saturday Night Live, his four comedy specials and his HBO show, Rock has attacked all walks of life with jabs at politics, race and fame (his favorite topics). Hopefully, there are still tickets left for todays 10:30 p.m. show. (At press time, the 7:30 p.m. show was sold out.) Verizon Wireless Theater, 520 Texas. For tickets and information, call 713-629-3700 or visit www.verizonwirelesstheater.com. $45.50 to $75.50.
