Comedian Tony Rock attends the BET Networks’ 2013 Los Angeles Upfront at Montage Beverly Hills in April.

Tony Rock is one of eight kids, including older brother Chris (yeah, that Chris). Tony hasn't had the same level of success, but he is host of the newly revamped talent competition Apollo Live on BET. The actor-comedian has been on other TV shows over the years — though, come to think of it, one of them was his brother's project Everybody Hates Chris. Think he gets tired of hearing about Chris? Hey, it's all good for laughs at Improv Comedy Theater, 1600 E Eighth Ave., Tampa. Shows are 8 p.m. today, 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday, 7:30 and 10 p.m. Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday. $14-$18. (813) 864-4000; improvtampa.com.
