The Return of Chris Tucker


Let me start off by saying that I am a fan of Chris Tucker.  Back in his Friday’s/Fifth Element/Money Talks days he was the go to black comedian.  Then came the Rush Hour series which helped to cement his name in Hollywood.  However somewhere in between the making of the Rush Hour trilogy Chris Tucker decided to take a break and concentrate on more philanthropic endeavors.  Which is great, but we missed seeing him on screen. 

Now we have his Netflix Comedy Special titled Chris Tucker Live which was actually filmed here in Atlanta at the Fox Theater.  What can I say, I love Chris Tucker, and although his comedy has toned down a bit, he is still funny.  You can tell that some of life’s experiences have dictated the change in tone of his comedy, which he touches on a bit when he discussed his trouble with the IRS and his friendship with Michael Jackson.    He discussed rumors of him doing another Friday’s movie, but I think he pretty much said that it was not going to happen.  He still has the Chris Tucker humor which made him a star.  Even though his movie projects are few and far between he is still a gem of a comedian.   

His Netflix Special is worth checking out, especially if you are a fan.   I am looking forward to seeing his next movie project, which I think is going to be Rush Hour 4.

Here’s to seeing more of Chris Tucker in future projects!
