COMEDIAN Chris Rock is at The O2 this weekend as part of his 'No Apologies' tour tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday.

The show mean the Emmy and Grammy award-winning Rock becomes the first comedian to play at the former Millennium Dome on the Thames waterfront at North Greenwich.

Rock came to Britain in January when he performed for the first time ever outside his native US.

He immediately sold out his original set of 2008 UK tour dates, so an additional week-long leg was added. He now returns to our shores to play another two dates at The O2.

Released on the back of the 'No Apologies' tour is Cheese and Crackers-The greatest Bits, featuring 19 tracks of Rock's most notorious moments and showcasing the Brooklyn-raised comic's insight on everything from race relations and politics to sex.

Most of the material comes from his legendary HBO specials, including the Grammy- and Emmy-winning Bring the Pain, Grammy Award-winning Bigger and Blacker, and 2004's Never Scared, which was also awarded a Grammy for Best Comedy Album.

A few tickets are still available from 08448-560202 or online at:
