Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer among Chicago’s visiting comedy stars this fall

One of the year’s top newsmakers, Chris Rock, has returned to the road with his first world tour in more than five years.

During his Ego Death World Tour, Rock recently has begun joking about his March run-in with Will Smith, who stormed the Oscars stage and slapped him.

Rock comes to the Chicago Theatre next month for shows Oct. 13-16. Only scattered tickets remain at ticketmaster.com.
