CHRIS TUCKER

HARRAH’S CONCERT VENUE // 9 P.M. FRIDAY, MARCH 24

WHO IS HE: Comedian Chris Tucker first started to get noticed in the early 1990s after an appearance on “Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy All-Star Jam.” Roles in “House Party 3” and “Friday” were soon to follow, and Tucker was well on his way to achieving stardom. Tucker is perhaps best known for his role in the 1998 action/comedy “Rush Hour” with Jackie Chan and the sequel that followed in 2001.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Chris Tucker’s high-pitched voice and fast talking delivery often have people laughing before he even reaches the punch line. When he was growing up, the Atlanta-native was an instant success on the Los Angeles comedy circuit early in his career, and he continues to leave crowds rolling in the aisles at his shows.

WHAT’S NEW: Tucker recently starred in the film “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.”
