Chris Tucker to bring comedy tour to SugarHouse Casino

5 December 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- "Rush Hour" movie star Chris Tucker brings his highly raved about stand-up comedy act to the SugarHouse Casino Event Center on Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018, at 9 p.m. Tickets for the show are available for purchase online and cost from $79 to $99.

Presently, Tucker is performing his stand-up comedy tour across the U.S. and internationally, entertaining audiences with his hilarious act. Best known for his role as Detective James Carter in the action/comedy "Rush Hour" film series with Jackie Chan, Tucker is a major player in the comedy scene.

"We are ecstatic to have Chris Tucker perform his hilarious stand-up act at SugarHouse," said Wendy Hamilton, general manager of SugarHouse Casino. "What better way to kick off 2018 than with the comedy legend?"

No stranger to the stage, Tucker became a fan favorite performing stand-up on the HBO TV series "Def Comedy Jam" in the 1990s. Since then, his comedy career has risen to new heights, having produced and starred in his first stand-up comedy special, "Chris Tucker Live," which was exclusively released to Netflix in 2015. In addition to his comedy performances, Tucker has appeared in major film releases, including the Oscar-nominated film "Silver Linings Playbook" with Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. His prominence in the industry began with the 1995 film "Friday" and has since sparked a box-office career that has made more than $1 billion.

Tickets for Tucker's show and for all other SugarHouse performances, including Michael Bolton (15 December) and The O'Jays (27 January 2018), can be purchased on the SugarHouse Casino headliner events page.

In addition to live performances and concerts, the SugarHouse Casino Event Center can be reserved for a variety of occasions, including weddings, corporate receptions, seminars, trade shows and more. The space features floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views of the Delaware River waterfront and the Ben Franklin Bridge. Parking is always free.
