RIVERS CASINO PHILADELPHIA SELL OUT LEADS TO SECOND CHRIS TUCKER COMEDY SHOW

The comedian will perform Feb. 9 and 10 at Philly’s casino

PHILADELPHIA — Jan. 24, 2018 — After selling out his Saturday, Feb. 10 show at Rivers Casino Philadelphia, comedian Chris Tucker has added a second performance on Friday, Feb. 9 at 9 p.m. Tickets are on sale today, Jan. 24 and cost from $79 to $99. The new date was added after the “Rush Hour” movie star’s initial show quickly sold out The Event Center.

“The excitement for Chris Tucker’s comedy show at Rivers is palpable,” said Wendy Hamilton, general manager of Rivers Casino Philadelphia. “Two nights in a row – I can’t believe it. So great!”

Presently, Tucker is performing his stand-up comedy tour across the United States and internationally, entertaining audiences with his hilarious act. Best known for his role as Detective James Carter in the action/comedy “Rush Hour” film series with Jackie Chan, Tucker is a major player in the comedy scene.

No stranger to the stage, Tucker became a fan favorite performing stand-up on the HBO TV series “Def Comedy Jam” in the 1990s. Since then, his comedy career has risen to new heights, having produced and starred in his first stand-up comedy special, “Chris Tucker Live,” which was exclusively released to Netflix in 2015.

In addition to his comedy performances, Tucker has appeared in major film releases, including the Oscar-nominated film “Silver Linings Playbook” with Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. His prominence in the industry began with the 1995 film “Friday,” and has since sparked a box-office career that has made more than $1 billion.

The space features floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views of the Delaware River waterfront and the Ben Franklin Bridge. Parking is always free.
