From a press release:

On Friday, Dec. 12 at 8:30 p.m., the prince of comedy’s royal Rock family, Jordan Rock, will return to Hawley, joined by the hilarious Truck Hudson.

“Seeing this calm, poised young comedian on stage, it’s easy to forget that Jordan Rock is just 22 years old. That’s because he speaks with a wisdom and candor well beyond his age. Of course, being mentored by big brothers Chris and Tony Rock doesn’t hurt, either. With that kind of rep to live up to, it’s hard not to deliver, and deliver is exactly what Jordan does night after night,” says Jill Carletti, managing director of Harmony Presents.

“Bright, versatile and instantly likeable, this young man has already established himself as a legitimate act and earned the respect of his peers. Being born in the same Brooklyn, New York home that already spawned comedic greatness, but raised in the semi-rural setting of Georgetown, South Carolina, Rock’s diverse roots make it easy for him to relate his message to any crowd.

“Ever the perfectionist, Jordan is constantly improving and perfecting his craft. If you thought he was good yesterday – wait till you see tomorrow night! They say that success is when opportunity meets preparedness – well, for the youngest Rock, a star is rising and he is prepared to ride it to the top.”
