    Na, Chris Rock was just 'motivated' by his childhood experiences, and thats what inspired him to produce this show. So hes just exaggerated a little...

    Oh good. In that episode, I think it was Everybody Hates Christmas,  Chris's friend said something about his dad not letting him have a Walkman because he was afraid of the type of music he would listen to, and Chris (Rock, not the character) said that his own dad shot him when he saw him playing the ice cubes (or something like that, I forget the exact words). Anyways, my parents thought that really happened and my mom got all freaked out...

    I'm know he has a brother but his name is not Drew. His name is Terry I think. I kno he appears on All of Us, he's Bobby's best friend. I have no clue about the sitster but I'm sure he has one. But the name was probabaly changed for the show.

    You know how Rochelle has a bunch of credit cards on the show? That's based in reality. He was doing an interview with Oprah once and he said that when he was a kid his mom had all the credit cards from stores that shouldn't even have credit cards because their products were so cheap. "You can't pay your credit card bill with your credit card!"

    Chris Rock really did live in Bedford Stuyvesant and he has said that he was bullied at school.

    I read somewhere (possibly even here on this board) that his parents were really called Julius and Rochelle, but he had more siblings and they had different names.

    And since Chris Rock was born in 1965 the show shouldnt take place in the 80's, so you know all that 80's related stuff is made up.

    Good because some of that stuff seems a tad bit too fake but extremely funny.

    Yeah I was thinking that, but I guess the whole seventies thing has gone out of fashion a bit over the last few years. Either that or Chris Rock wants us to believe that he's only 34/5 I guess they just moved it forward a little bit to include a bit of 80's stuff. Even if its not real it's still funny

    It's mainly based on Chris Rock's life, but he stretched it a bit.
