Chris Rock.jpg

(played by Tyler James Williams), is the ambitious, normal, responsible, intelligent, and kind-hearted, but unlucky, unpopular, untalented, nonathletic, underachieving, hapless, awkward, nerdy, vulnerable and mischievous eldest child and protagonist of the series. He wishes he was more like his younger brother, Drew. Regardless of whether Chris possesses any positive traits, he's certainly never treated as if he does (being disliked by the opposite race, unlike his siblings). He tries hard to fit in with his peers but often finds himself a victim of circumstance. Chris is bullied and beat up at school (with little protection obtained from teachers or faculty members), tortured by his sister, humiliated by his brother, victimized by the racist teaching staff, rejected by girls (most of whom prefer Drew), slandered by his neighbors, ignored by his schoolmates, robbed by neighborhood thugs, is underpaid at work, and receives tough love from his mother and distressing treatment from his father. As the eldest child, he is often put in charge of his younger siblings, but they usually disobey him and he usually has to take the blame for them. Next to all this, Chris is always the butt of the last jokes on each show. People just seem to hate him for inexplicable reasons. His luck does improve as the series progresses. One of his talents is playing Asteroids and the other is calling basketball games. As he gets older, Chris becomes interested in stand-up comedy and begins telling jokes in school. At the end of the series – after being told that he has to repeat the tenth grade for constantly being late for school – he drops out and gets his GED, though his narrator dropped out due to bullying. He later grows up to be a rich and famous comedian.
