PressReleases, 7/11/2011 7:41 pm

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 11, 2011) - Armed with a trademarked style,
incomparable delivery, impeccable comedic timing and a signature
voice, actor and comedian Chris Tucker is set to embark on an 18 date
national stand-up comedy tour. The Live Nation produced tour kicks
off on August 19th in Long Beach, California. Tickets go on sale
beginning July 15th at 10:00 am at and

Early in his stand-up career, Tucker gained a reputation as one of the
leading comics on the Los Angeles comedy circuit and was invited to
participate in hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam on HBO,
where he became a frequent performer. As a high energy actor, Tucker
paired up with one of rap's greatest, Ice Cube, in the 1995 cult
classic, Friday. As "Smokey" in Friday, Tucker utilized his keen
sense of comedy and acting while developing a signature screen persona
that would garner international fame and recognition. He then gave a
remarkable performance alongside veteran actor Lorenz Tate in Dead
Presidents and landed co-starring roles in such memorable films as
Money Talks, with actor Charlie Sheen; The Fifth Element with action
hero Bruce Willis; and Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown.

Beyond the popularity and notoriety of the previous years' films, it
was the 1998 blockbuster hit Rush Hour that amassed a global following
to catapult Tucker to international stardom. The action comedy,
starring Tucker and martial artist Jackie Chan, would transfix
audiences and surpass box office records, making the feature film an
extraordinary global success. Rush Hour 2 and Rush Hour 3, both huge
hits with audiences, further established Tucker as one of the great
comedy actors of his generation.
