Chris Tucker In Richmond This Summer



Comedian and film star Chris Tucker will perform in Richmond this summer. Tucker has played in several movies and is best remembered for playing the fast-talking Detective James Carter in “Rush Hour.” He co-starred in the hit “Silver Linings Playbook” and “Last Friday” with Ice Cube. He will perform June 24 at the Altria Theater. Tucker relaunched his stand-up career in 2011. Tucker, who has starred in films that have collectively grossed more than $1 billion in box office sales world-wide, usually jokes about his wealth and tax troubles.

“I appreciate you all coming out and help me out with my taxes,” Tucker told one audience that paid $40 to $60 each. “That’s the last time I’m going to ask Wesley Snipes to help me out.”
In Atlanta during a sold-out performance in 2014, he said, “I am excited about kicking off this 2014 PAYBACK TOUR in comedy clubs, its back to my roots as a comedian.”
Tucker has said he walked away from movies was because he wasn’t happy with the roles he was offered. He performed at the Hampton Coliseum on April 16.
