When: Fri., Sept. 13, 7:30 p.m. 2013
While we generally like to avoid the obvious jokes, Chris Tucker is in town, and it is Friday — you know you ain’t got no job, and you ain’t got shit to do. Sorry, we had to do it. Also, we wrote about three versions of our Rush Hour joke — but none of them were very good. (Hey-oh!) And then there was that joke about Ruby Rhod and Milla Jovovich’s Band-Aid bikini, but we couldn’t get it to jibe with Gary Oldman’s see-thru wigdome and Bruce Willis’ hairline — who knows, maybe it just needs a fifth element. (Badum-cha!) In all seriousness, all-time classic characters aside, Chris Tucker is one helluva performer, and a master of stand-up — his pre-Hollywood clips are national treasures and should be preserved in the Library of Congress. And that’s no joke.
