Chris Tucker - Chris Tucker Jokes About Money Woes In Stand-up Show

Funnyman Chris Tucker is laughing off his financial woes by cracking jokes about his money troubles as part of his comedy stand-up routine.
The Rush Hour star was hit with a staggering $11 million (£6.88 million) tax bill from America's Internal Revenue Service (Irs) last year (10) and reports suggesting he's facing foreclosure on his $6 million (£3.75 million) mansion in Florida emerged this week (begs10Oct11).
But Tucker is not letting his cash worries get him down - and he has worked them into his comedy show.
During a recent performance in Miami, Florida, the comedian joked, "They (Irs officials) calling you acting like you owe them the money personally! I don't owe you s**t! This is between me and the company!"
Tucker even poked fun at another embattled actor who was sentenced to prison for tax troubles, quipping, "That's the last time I let Wesley Snipes help me out with my taxes!"
Snipes began a three-year prison sentence last December (10) for neglecting to file income tax returns in 1999, 2000 and 2001.
