Grammy Award-winning comedian Chris Rock will bring his signature high-pitched delivery and hilarious stage prowl to the area, as the top billed act in Fallsview Casino's upcoming February entertainment lineup.

Gaining the No. 5 spot on Comedy Central's "100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time" and honored with HBO's esteemed "Comedian Award," Rock brings the energy and excitement with his onstage riffs and rants to Fallsview Casino from Feb. 21-23.

Also in February, Fallsview Casino host's fan-favorite American rock band Three Dog Night (Feb. 1-2); 1960s platinum artists The 5th Dimension (Feb. 3-4); a "Country Classics" production performing chart-topping hits through the decades (Feb. 6-11); a celebration of Michael Jackson in a theatrical spectacle - "Man in the Mirror" (Feb. 14-19); and, closing out the month, the cornerstone of folk-pop music, Art Garfunkel: "In Close-Up" (Feb. 25).
