Jordan Rock, the youngest in the Rock family, was born on Feb. 10, 1991, and grew up in Georgetown, South Carolina.

While his older siblings had a different upbringing, Rose moved the family to Georgetown, according to The New York Times.

Jordan left high school early and, at 18, relocated to Brooklyn to chase his comedy dreams.

He acknowledged being inspired by his brothers, especially Chris, in 2019 in an interview.

Despite the inspiration, being Chris’ brother posed challenges, and Jordan has expressed at times wishing for a simpler name like Ronaldo.

In 2015, Jordan joined his brother Tony on the road, and a year later, he had a breakthrough role on the Netflix series Love.

This was followed by a part in Big Time Adolescence (2019) alongside Pete Davidson, and he also starred in Davidson’s Netflix special Pete Davidson Presents: The Best Friends.

Beyond his career, Jordan has developed a closer bond with his big brother Chris over the years.


Chris Rock is not only a comedy legend, but also a proud brother of seven siblings who are all talented and successful in their own ways.

They share a strong bond and a sense of humor that runs in the family.

They are also supportive and respectful of each other’s achievements and endeavors.

Chris Rock’s siblings are truly an inspiration to us all.
