Chris Tucker 

When: Sat., July 16, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $40-60

In the late 1990s, Chris Tucker exploded as a comic and film star along with Chris Rock, prompting my friends and me to come up with an unintentionally racist joke about a sitcom called "Two Loud Black Guys Named Chris." It was high school. Regardless, Tucker got a cult following from Friday, big bucks and box office from the Rush Hour films, and as for The Fifth Element ... well, he was in that. In 2010, after barely appearing in any films over the past decade, Tucker made headlines again after it was revealed he owed more than $11 million in federal taxes in California. He was recently rumored to be up for a role in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained but lost to Jamie Foxx, who previously said on LA's Joe Clair & Earthquake Show that it was time for Tucker to "go to work." Perhaps Tucker has taken Foxx's advice, as he has started doing stand-up again this year. Perhaps he'll be all over the big screen again, at least to work his way out of his hole. Five gets you 10 someone tonight shouts at him, "Do ... you ... understand the words that are coming out of my mouth?"—Zack Smith
