I had the pleasure of seeing Chris Tucker live at the beautiful FOX Theatre in Detroit last night. He was hilarious! Had tons of material and was entertaining as hell. The show, surprisingly, was not a sell out but if you weren’t in attendance you really missed out.
His was the second live stand up that I’ve seen at the FOX Theatre. The first was and he didn’t put on a good show at all. He even threw in some old ass jokes for the road. Just lazy.
This was not my first time seeing Chris Tucker live. When I was a youngster (and so was Chris) I saw him perform at a local club in Flint.
The show was cancelled during his performance because he got into a fight with a girl who was heckling him in the audience. I remember that leaving a bad taste in my mouth for him and his comedy over the years but somehow by the time the first Rush Hour came out he was back in my good graces.
I still can’t believe he fought a woman, tho. To be young, crazy, high and dumb…
