Chris Tucker 

When: Fri., April 24 2015



DURHAM PERFORMING ARTS CENTER—A couple of years ago, Chris Tucker told the INDY that he had a stand-up concert movie he was going to drop in theaters. Well, after two years, it looks like that movie is finally on the horizon—except it's going to be on Netflix. It was announced last month that Chris Tucker Live, Tucker's first-ever standup special, will debut on the streaming service this summer. So, OK, maybe Tucker isn't on that superstar level where he can easily get a stand-up film into movie houses anymore. (Who does dude think he is? Kevin Hart?) For a while in the aughts, it looked like the elusive Def Comedy Jam vet would go the Eddie Murphy-route and step away from the mike altogether. But it's funny how owing $12 million in back taxes will make you get back to doing what you're good at, and at least audiences can finally see the Friday and Rush Hour star back onstage. 8 p.m., $35–$75, 123 Vivian St., Durham, 919-680-2787,
