Friday, March 27 –
Chris Tucker, wildly known as Jackie Chan’s hilarious FBI “baby-sitter” turned sidekick and crime solver in the Rush Hour movies, brings his live stand-up routine to Tulsa. In 1990, eight years before the original Rush Hour was released, Tucker began exploring his comedic talents on the stage of Russell Simmons’ HBO series, Def Comedy Jam – a stage that welcomed other prominent comedians including Dave Chappelle, Bernie Mac, Cedric the Entertainer, Chris Rock and Eddie Griffin, to name a few. You may also know Tucker from his big screen debut in the 1995 film Friday, where he played Smokey, the drug dealer who smoked all the product sending him and Craig (Ice Cube) on a search for money to pay back the boss. And in 2012, Tucker secured himself a small role in Silver Linings Playbook as Bradley Cooper’s best friend who Cooper’s character, Pat Jr., helps break out of their mental facility. A comedian for the better part of his life, Tucker is extremely comfortable on a stand-up stage. You can see him live on Friday, March 27 at Tulsa’s Brady Theater, 105 W. Brady St. For more information, visit www.bradytheater.com.
