After a hiatus, Chris Tucker recently returned to acting roles.
Comedian and actor Chris Tucker is bringing his high-energy standup routine to town with The Legend Tour 2023, his first sizable road journey in more than a decade.

Known for his roles as Detective James Carter in the '90s blockbuster hit Rush Hour and the motormouthed Smokey in Friday, Tucker took a step out of the limelight to focus on philanthropic work.

However, the comedian — who was influenced by the no-holds barred humor of Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor — recently returned to acting roles, including playing Howard White in Amazon Studios' AIR, a docu-drama about Michael Jordan's revolutionary shoe deal with Nike.

Tucker also released a Netflix special in 2015 that demonstrated that he hasn't lost his chops behind the mic.

$39.50-$124, 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2, Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333,
