When: Fri., Jan. 8 and Sat., Jan. 9 2016
Did you know this comedian, filmmaker, and actor isn’t native to America? He was born in Frankfurt, Germany while both of his parents were serving in the U.S. military. Who knew, right? His parents really loved America because they named him after Martin Luther King Jr. as well as John F. Kennedy — he shares the middle name Fitzgerald with the late president. Anyway, you know him from films like Do the Right Thing, Bad Boys, Big Momma’s House, Death at a Funeral, and a slew of other popular flicks. He’ll be performing his special brand of stand-up during his appearances at the Fox. Shows start at 7 p.m.; 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 800-745-3000; olympiaentertainment.com; tickets start at $45.
