Boisterous, fast-talking comedian Chris Tucker has become notorious for his catchphrases in movies like Friday and the Rush Hour movies. People might be surprised to find that Tucker began his career as a stand-up comedian, which eventually led to an illustrious acting career. In the absence of any new movies since Rush Hour 3 in 2007, Chris Tucker has returned to stand-up and can currently be found performing across the US.
After performing tirelessly in comedy clubs for a few years, Tucker began to gain popularity with side-splitting appearances on Def Comedy Jam in 1992. The success of these stand-up performances -- and a role in House Party 3 -- led to Tucker being cast in the role of the hyper-active stoner Smokey in the 1995 movie, Friday. The role was a breakout performance for Tucker, and led to a co-starring role in Money Talks and small role as Ruby Rhod in The Fifth Element. He is probably best remembered for his role as a comic foil to Jackie Chan in the Rush Hour movies, the third of which marks Tucker's last film appearance.
Chris Tucker is now taking his comedy off of the big screen and on to the stage with his unique brand of live comedy. Stay tuned to Eventful for the latest updates on his new tours.
