A Few Fridays Ago (June, 24, 2011), Columbus had the great pleasure of welcoming Chris Tucker in town for his comedy tour. Although I was not able to attend myself,I heard it was hilarious and definitely a show to try and catch at some point. I plan on possibly catching it in another city or maybe just waiting for the show to hit DVD. <!–more–> It’s good to know Chris is back on radar, and I hope this means we’ll be seeing a lot more of his presence in the entertainment business. With that being said, I thought we may highlight some of Tucker’s film appearances that helped shape the comedian and entertainer he is today. Now, we all have seen the famous Rush Hour movies; however, I wish to highlight his earlier works.
Possibly his second most popular film of his career, Friday marked Chris Tucker as a promising actor for the future. His often raw and vernacular nature proved surprising and quite hilarious to audiences across the country. With counterpart Ice Cube alongside him, Friday displayed a simple movie about one day in the hood. A film that could have easily been forgettable and cliché, turned out to be one of the funniest films to date… “And you know this, man!”
