Netflix Brings Back Chris Tucker

Netflix really doesn’t want you to leave your screens. The video streaming service even went to the ends of the earth to find comedian Chris Tucker and bring him out of hiding for his first full-length stand-up comedy special. Chris Tucker Live will air on the site July 10, The Hollywood Reporter announced today, and will dabble in everything from his experiences during childhood to his success in Hollywood.

“Chris Tucker is a true global movie star and a one-of-a-kind talent whose remarkable energy, delivery and original style make him one of the funniest comedians of our time,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer. “We cannot wait to share his distinct and hilarious voice with our members across the globe.” Chris Tucker joins a list of comedians who have specials on Netflix including Aziz Ansari, Kevin Hart, Katt Williams and Chelsea Handler.
