About Everybody Hates Chris

The hilarious Everybody Hates Chris is loosely based on the childhood experiences of comedian Chris Rock, a teenager growing up in 1980s Brooklyn with three younger siblings. Sound easy? It's not. Chris is responsible for taking care of his brother Drew and sister Tonya while their parents work. Drew is taller and more popular than Chris, while Tonya gets all the attention. Chris's dad works several jobs to support the family, while his strict and sassy mom runs the house on a tight budget. At his new school, Chris is an immediate target for bullies. Luckily, his natural charm and wit enable him to make friends and talk his way out of one comical situation after another!
