The show's not a Friday, but Chris Tucker is headed to Tampa this summer.

Tickets to see the 50-year-old comic and star of "Rush Hour" and "Friday" do two stand-up sets at the Hard Rock Event Center at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Sunday, July 17 are on sale now and start at $103.

It's been 24 years since Tucker made himself a household name as Detective James Carter in "Rush Hour" (and its two sequels). It's been even longer since he dropped some of the best one-liners alongside Ice Cube in "Friday," which could be up for a reboot if you believe the tabloids.
Who knows what Tucker will get into during his act, but you ain't got shit to do that night, right?
