With his distinctive, high-pitched voice and flair for physical comedy, Chris Tucker knows how to stand out in a crowd. Whether he’s trading barbs with Ice Cube in the Friday series, playing the foil to Jackie Chan’s straight man in the Rush Hour movies, or barging through the third act of The Fifth Element, Tucker lights up the screen. Yet, as seen in his recent turn in Silver Linings Playbook, he also knows when to dial down his energy.
Since most audiences know Tucker from film, they’ll be unsurprised to see how easily his movie-star charisma translates to the stage during his standup show. Unwound and irascible, yet far more grounded than his motor-mouthed screen persona, Tucker waxes observational, performs dead-on impressions, and shares some of the autobiographical anecdotes populating his ever-percolating brain.
Several decades of disparate architectural styles stand at the corner of 69th and Ludlow: an old-fashioned radio tower atop the Doric columns of a faux-classical cupola atop a streamlined marquee that broadcasts the year the Tower Theatre opened as a music venue: 1972. That's when it began helping introduce the world to such acts as David Bowie, Genesis, and Bruce Springsteen. Inside, red lights glow over an auditorium done up in the 1920s style of the movie palace that originally filled the venue, with marble pillars, Italianate archways, and an enormous light fixture that resembles an old film reel.
