Fans have come to look forward to the start of a Chris Tucker show, which features a hilarious reel of clips from some of Tucker’s most notable films including “Friday,” “Money Talks,” and of course, the “Rush Hour” franchise, reminding the audience of the many years Tucker has made us laugh, but what they really came to see Saturday night at The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort was the high-energy comedian and his flawless stand up. After walking on stage and receiving a standing ovation, Tucker easily slid right into the fast paced, animated comedy he’s best known for touching on Las Vegas, of course, the strange things that happen in public when you’re a celebrity and, naturally, the comic sprinkled impressions thought-out including Ron Isley, giving Tucker a chance to also show of his vocal prowess.

Honoring Memorial Day
We know you're excited about having Monday off, but remember what this weekend is really about: remembering those who have died while serving our country. That's why we were so touched when we heard from Navy Veteran, Frank Moriarty, and his TurboPUP, Chowder.
During his 11 year Naval career, Frank served in Operation Phantom Fury. As a result of his deployment, he suffers from Combat-Related PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury.
In 2015 his car was stolen and destroyed; and he lost his home within a couple of weeks. Unable to get help, he reached out to the Semper Fi Fund.
Thanks to the hard work of the Semper Fi Fund, he has a great apartment and is back on his feet hiking the entire Appalachian Trail to raise money for the Semper Fi Fund.

TurboPUP is proud to be a Veteran owned company and support fellow Veterans. Please share Frank's story!
