Rush Hour Comedy Weekend
Something different for Easter Weekend. We in Kansas City have a rare opportunity to see one of Hollywood’s biggest film and comedy stars up close and personal. The star of the ‘Rush Hour’ movies, ‘Friday’, the Oscar nominated ‘Silver Linings Playbook’, ‘The Fifth Element’ with Bruce Willis, and even ‘Dead Presidents’; Chris Tucker has chosen Kansas City and Stanford and Sons as one of four stops to work out material for new HBO special. Chris bolted onto the Hollywood scene in his smash hit ‘Rush Hour’ franchise in which he co-starred with Jackie Chan. Tucker did so well with the series that it made him one of Hollywood’s highest paid actors.
Chris is still relatively young in his early 40’s and is preparing for another HBO special as well as one last ‘Rush Hour’ movie and a final ‘Friday’ movie in the works as well. Almost forgotten is the fact that Chris Tucker started his career as a blazing hot stand-up comic which led to his opportunity to star in several major motion pictures. Take this holiday weekend, if you are a Chris Tucker fan, to see him up close and personal; he does meet-and-greets after the show and does take photos with fans.
Next week, Stanfords provides two television stars together for the first time. Todd Bridges, best known as ‘Willis’ from the ‘Diff’rent Strokes’ TV series as well as recurring appearances in shows like ‘Everybody Hates Chris’ and Tru TV’s ‘World’s Dumbest’ and in movies like Adam Sandler’s ‘That’s My Boy’, will make his first appearance at Stanford & Sons Comedy Club alongside Julie McCullough from TV’s ‘Growing Pains’ and a recent appearance in the Sci-Fi channel’s ‘Sharknado’. Julie also appeared in ‘Playboy’ and provided a voice in the movie ‘Ice Age’. See them both together next week at Stanford’s Wednesday through Saturday.
Call (913)400-7500 to get tickets for any of these shows or go online at http://stanfordscomedyclub.com . Enjoy your weekend.
