About Everybody Hates Chris

Inspired by his childhood in New York, popular comedian Chris Rock narrates the hilarious, touching story of a teenager growing up as the eldest of three children in Brooklyn during the early 1980s. Uprooted to a new neighbourhood and bused to a predominantly Italian middle school two hours away by his strict, hard-working parents, Chris (Tyler James Williams) struggles to keep his everyday trials and traumas in check as he thinks, talks or runs his way through one growing experience after another, both at home and at school.
