When: Sat., Jan. 21, 8 p.m. 2017
Sometimes we idly wonder if Tucker regrets that most people know him for starring opposite Jackie Chan in the Rush Hour series. How many people per week approach him on the street and excitedly ask, “Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth?” Maybe he will address this during his stand-up comedy event at the Fox Theatre, though we doubt it. And there are more interesting aspects to Tucker’s life, including but not limited to the fact that he was close friends with Michael Jackson, he’s traveled with Bill Clinton, and he participated in a PBS special that investigated the genetic makeup of African-Americans. Show starts at 8 p.m.; 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit olympiaentertainment.com; 800-745-3000; tickets are $45.50, $55.50, and $75.50.
