Smokey back! Well sort of…
Chris Tucker is making his return to standup in his first ever special Chris Tucker Live which will premier exclusively on the popular streaming service Netflix.
We’ve been hearing rumblings about this special for sometime, now we finally get to see a small glimpse of it. Chris has made frequent appearances on the Def Comedy Jam stage but never had his own comedy special. Chris’s fame on the big screen immediately took off after he starred alongside Ice Cube in Friday. He became a household name with breakout roles in The Fifth Element, Money Talks and The Rush Hour franchise. It was reported back in March that Netflix picked up the rights to the special and we have just been patiently waiting to see the outcome.
Chris on the special: “I’m thrilled to be partnering with Netflix, one of the true global leaders in entertainment, on my first comedy special. Before people started seeing me in movies, I was doing standup. It’s always been a part of me, and now I’m excited to share it with my fans around the world”
In the small clips we see Chris talking about experiences with his good friend the late Michael Jackson and more peep it below.
Chris joins other big names like Aziz Ansari, Chelsea Handler who also had comedy specials on Netflix. Chris Tucker Live premieres on the service July 10th.
