Date Posted: 06/09/12
Actor and stand-up comedian Chris Tucker has revealed three UK dates for later on this year.
Fans of the Rush Hour star should book London hotels for Saturday, November 24th to catch the first of the three stand-up dates.
He then plays Birmingham's Symphony Hall on Monday, November 26th and Manchester's O2 Apollo on Wednesday, November 28th.
Influenced by the likes of Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy, Tucker first made a name for himself when he was still a teenager on Def Comedy Jam. He took time out from comedy to act but then made a successful return to stand-up last year.
Beyond his performances alongside Jackie Chan as detective James Carter in the Rush Hour series, Tucker is best known for his stand-up routines on Def Comedy Jam and his roles in Friday and The Fifth Element.
He was successful in negotiating a contract worth $25 million for his role in Rush Hour 3, this made him the highest paid actor in Hollywood in 2006.
