There is nothing tranquil about comedian/actor Chris Tucker, who hits the Apollo Theater in New York, NY, Ended 14 Dec 2012.. A limber, wiry fellow with a high-pitched voice and a delivery as fast as a mosquito's wing beats, he seems energy incarnate.

COMEDY STYLE

He is probably best known for playing the role of Detective James Carter opposite Jackie Chan in the Rush Hour film series, although he started out on the Def Comedy Jam at age 20, where his love of stand-up brought him widespread acclaim. Since his $11m run-in with the IRS in 2010, he has walked away from movies after Rush Hour 3 flopped (apart from his critically acclaimed appearance in Silver Linings Playbook), but his return to stand-up comedy is a welcome one, and his genial persona in no way alienates his audience by relating this experience.

By poking fun at himself, his family experiences and masterful impressions of other celebrities despite that distinctive high voice, he is able to blow up the barrier between audience and wealthy (former) movie star, as well as providing newer, fresher material without ever resorting to vulgarity or profanities.
