ATLANTA, GA (July 2014) – The Fox Theatre will present a special evening with international award-winning actor and comedian Chris Tucker for his all new, one man stand-up comedy show on Saturday, August 30th at 8:00 p.m. Tickets range from $48 – $68 and will be available for purchase this Friday, July 11th at 10:00 a.m. at www.FoxTheatre.org, by calling 855-285-8499, or at the Fox Theatre ticket office.
Tucker, an Atlanta native, is known for his roles in “Friday” and the blockbuster “Rush Hour” film series and, most recently, the 2013 Oscar-nominated film “Silver Linings Playbook” with Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lawrence, and Bradley Cooper. Tucker’s newest project “Chris Tucker Live,” taped previously at the Fox Theatre, will be released in theaters later this year.
Tucker quickly became a favorite on Russell Simmon’s “Def Comedy Jam” on HBO in the 1990’s and came to prominence in the 1995 film “Friday” alongside Ice Cube. Next, he co-starred and executive produced “Money Talks” with Charlie Sheen and appeared in Luc Besson’s “The Fifth Element” before beginning work on the commercially successful “Rush Hour” film series. In 2006, he negotiated an unprecedented $25 million salary to appear in “Rush Hour 3,” which at the time made him the highest paid actor in Hollywood.
To date, Chris Tucker has starred in films that have collectively grossed over $1 billion in box office sales worldwide and is now on an international stand-up comedy tour that has received rave reviews from all over the world.
