If you are a fan of movies like Friday or Rush Hour then you know exactly who Chris Tucker is and how funny he really is. Well, he is coming to Lake Charles for a big concert in November.

Chris Tucker appeared on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam in the 1990s which launched his first acting role. In 1995, he starred in the cult classic hit movie Friday alongside Ice Cube in 1995. He played Smokey in the film and took over the whole movie with his memorable role.

Most of you though may know him from the Rush Hour movie franchise as he played Sgt., James Carter alongside Jackie Chan. The movie series was so popular that it spawned two sequels in the series.


When Rush Hour 3 was being made in 2006, Tucker was paid a $25 million salary to appear in the film. When he got paid that kind of money, it made him the highest-paid actor in Hollywood at that time.

Some of Chris Tucker's other film credits include Silver Linings Playbook, Money Talks, and Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. He has also had stand-up comedy shows released like Chris Tucker Live on Netflix.

Chris Tucker will be making a stop in Lake Charles at the Golden Nugget Casino and Resort on Saturday, November 12th, 2022. Chris will hit the stage that night at 8:00 pm and tickets for the show go on sale this Friday, August 12th at 10:00 am.
