SugarHouse Casino announces second Chris Tucker show

24 January 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- After selling out his Saturday, 10 February show at SugarHouse Casino, comedian Chris Tucker has added a second performance on Friday, 9 February at 9 p.m. Tickets are on sale today and cost between $79 and $99. The new date was added after the "Rush Hour" movie star's initial show quickly sold out The Event Center.

"The excitement for Chris Tucker's comedy show at SugarHouse is palpable," said Wendy Hamilton, general manager of SugarHouse Casino. "Two nights in a row -- I can't believe it. So great!"

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.

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 Chris Tucker's show and for all SugarHouse performances can be purchased on the SugarHouse Casino headliner events page. Upcoming shows include The Revolution (9 March) and Jon Dorenbos (16 March).

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.
