With one of the most distinctive voices and styles of modern comedy, Chris Tucker is set to perform at the Pearl inside Palms Casino Resort on October 13, 2012 at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $69, plus any additional service fees.
Chris Tucker is best known for his role of Detective James Carter in the “Rush Hour” film series. Starting his career as a stand up comedian, Tucker’s bold sense of humor landed him a spot on “Def Comedy Jam” where he frequently performed in the 1990s.
The buzz that Tucker garnered from his many appearances as a stand up helped open doors in the film industry. Following his film debut in 1994’s “House Party 3,” Tucker achieved ‘cult classic’ status as Smokey in the stoner comedy “Friday.” Tucker’s next big movie role was in the avant-garde film “The Fifth Element.”
Tucker’s film career reached soaring heights as the star of the “Rush Hour” blockbuster film series. The original, along with two sequels, grossed more than $500 million in the U.S. The success of the films enabled Tucker to negotiate a salary of $25 million, making him one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood for “Rush Hour 3.”
Tucker recently wrapped production on a new film directed by David O. Russell – “Silver Linings Playbook” starring Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. The film is set for a November release.
Doors at the Pearl will open at 7 p.m. and show time is 8 p.m. The Pearl Box Office is open daily from noon until 7 p.m. with extended hours on select event days. The Pearl is now on Twitter. Follow @PearlatPalms for concert announcements and event information.
