Tony Rock

It's true he lives in the shadow of his much more famous big brother Chris Rock, but that doesn't mean Tony Rock can't hold his own on the stand-up stage. Unafraid to tackle politically incorrect topics, Rock riffs on the need for blacks to support undocumented Mexican immigrants. "First of all, everybody in this fucking country is here illegally. Even the white people are here illegally - they just killed all the witnesses. I want to see more black people at the rallies to keep the Mexicans in the country. If they get rid of the Mexicans, who the fuck do you think is next? I'm down with the Mexicans. I don't even speak Spanish, I'm just [marching], 'Hey taco! Chimichanga! Chalupa!'" 8 p.m. Thursday, 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Houston Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713-333-8800 or visit $18 to $20.
