Watch Chris Tucker go back to his roots and bring the crowds to tears with his live stand-up comedy at the Arizona Financial Theatre on Thursday, the 5th of October this year!
As part of his upcoming “The Legend Tour,” Chris Tucker has announced thirty shows scheduled to take place from September this year to January next year in venues across the mainland United States and Canada. This announced event will be his first major tour after a twelve-year hiatus.
Although the comedy industry has evolved significantly since Tucker's last tour and his Netflix comedy special, "Chris Tucker Live," Tucker claimed in an interview with The Times published in April that travelling keeps him sharp and gives his fans a lifeline.
“I started my career doing stand-up in comedy clubs, and it’s stand-up comedy that prepared me for all my movie roles. I’m looking forward to getting back to my roots. I love performing live; there’s nothing like the energy of a live crowd and making people laugh. I’m excited to be back out on tour.” he shares in his latest statement regarding the tour.
Before his scene-stealing performance in the classic movie “Friday” brought him to stardom, Tucker gained fame as a rising stand-up comedian. After the success of his film debut, he passed on the sequels in favor of odd supporting roles in movies like “Dead Presidents” and “Jackie Brown.”
“Even his low-brow material caused the audience to erupt in laughter. On the subject of truly knowing someone’s sleeping habits before you wed, Tucker made a wide array of fart noises, naming them different wars,” the Medium shares in a recent live review.
“Despite conflicting political and religious beliefs, Tucker’s performance brought audience members under one roof for the same reason: to laugh. And at a time when the nation is as divided as ever, it was much needed, even if only for a mere two hours.”
