Re: “Chris Tucker is alive and doing very well

This dude below ADAM BUSUTTIL sayin "I love Chris Rock"

It's an article about Chris Tucker. Black people all look the same to you? Was Michael Jackson from the movie Space Jam and one of the best basketball players ever?

Re: “Lily Tomlin Reinvented the “One-Man Show” for Women like Margaret Cho

Tomlin's magic is that she holds the audience in her palm from start to finish and leaves them exhilirated.

Re: “Chris Tucker is alive and doing very well

I had the opportunity of meeting Chris Tucker very early in his career, in fact I think I booked him on his first TV appearance on a show called Uptown Comedy Club, in Harlen back in the mid 8-'s. What I recall is he's a very funny guy, extremely talented and full of potential. But I got a taste of the 'diva' attitude Jackie Chan spoke of during one of his interviews. Chris tried very hard to embarrass me, saying he didn't get a change in a schedule when my job was solely to kept track of the schedule. He didn't return any calls, shows up when he wanted to then proceeded to curse me out and grand stand in front of a lot of people. He towered over my 5'4' frame, 110lbs but I held my own. He showed me then who he was, never apologized or acknowledge that I forwarded his information onto McDonald's when they called later wanting him to be in a commercial. Mind you, I'm old enough to be his mother, a black woman who didn't get any respect from him. He was rude, hostile and somewhat threatening. I'm not surprised that he's not working as much as he should. He needs a slap upside the head.

Re: “Kevin Hart, coming to PNC Arena May 1, is one of comedy's biggest stars—so where's the critical love?

I think it's just a matter of differing sensibilities. Hart is a broader comic who appeals to a wider range of people. For better or worse, Louis could never play PNC. Hart is more in the same class with Dane Cook or the a Blue a Collar guys or even Tosh. Meanwhile, Hannibal Buress is very popular with tastemakers because his style is more off-kilter and unpredictable.

No problem! He's awesome. It was a total miscommunication. I just wanted to clear it up

Re: “A Chelsea Handler accomplice rocks Local 506

Jen, this is INDY arts editor Brian Howe. I'm very sorry about this. I've spoken with the writer of the piece to determine what happened. Apparently, from a discussion about the fact that you sometimes perform in rock clubs, he jumped to the erroneous conclusion that you prefer them. I'm correcting the piece. Thanks for letting us know and again, my apologies.

Re: “A Chelsea Handler accomplice rocks Local 506

Thank you for this wonderful article on me! However, I never said that I prefer rock clubs to comedy clubs. I perform at both and comedy clubs are my favorite places in the world. They are the places that I first went to see comedy and I get a feeling of excitement walking in to one to this day . Due to my schedule constraints - I sometimes perform at rock clubs or small theaters if I only have time to be in that city for one night (most clubs require a 3-4 night commitment from a comedian.)

Sure, certain towns I can guarantee that my fans are more of the "indie" variety, younger, have less money and are fine with standing room. In certain college towns or more "punk rock" places, I'll do a rock club to cater to the particular fans coming - that way they don't have to pay drink minimums or high prices.

But never did the words come out of my mouth that I prefer "rock clubs" - I feel having this in print gives me a certain kind of reputation as someone that can't handle comedy clubs and may damage my reputation with existing clubs I work with and future clubs that I want to work with.

Sincerely,
Jen Kirkman

Re: “Cult comedian Dylan Moran's stream of consciousness

Saw Moran when his U.S. tour brought him to Minneapolis. His performance was a master class in stand-up comedy, easily on par with popular U.S. favorite Louis CK.

Re: “Local nightclubs and bars are increasingly opening their doors to budding standup acts

Great read! It should be noted that the 1st comedian mentioned was doing an act-out of Celine Dion's "Titanic" theme song.

Re: “Liberal talk-show host Stephanie Miller on defending Obama and outselling Pacino

I'm happy for Miller because her show is or was outselling Al Pacino, but I'm not sure that says good things about our culture. On the one hand, a comedienne and talk show host of fair-to-middling accomplishment. On the other hand, arguably the world's greatest actor, making the kind of appearance he almost never makes. Notwithstanding the shameless cheerleading for Miller from writer Danny Hooley, if those ticket sale numbers were anything other than an anomaly, it might be time to revisit cultural critique.
