International award-winning actor and comedian Chris Tucker is coming to South Africa this November! Chris Tucker became a favourite on Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam on HBO in the 90s and rose to fame in his first starring role, the 1995 film cult classic Friday, alongside Ice Cube. In 1997, Tucker was the executive producer and also co-starred in the hit movie, Money Talks, with Charlie Sheen. He then acted in the successful Luc Besson film, The Fifth Element, shortly afterwards. Tucker also appeared in the hilarious and action-packed Rush Hour 3, which made him one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood. In 2015, his first stand-up film, Chris Tucker Live was released exclusively on Netflix. Outside of comedy, Tucker is a dedicated humanitarian spending much of his spare time travelling the world, doing philanthropic work to make a difference through his Chris Tucker Foundation.
