Chris Tucker Jokes About Owing Money To The IRS
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 star was hit with a staggering $11 million tax bill from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) last year and reports suggesting he's facing foreclosure on his $6 million mansion in Florida emerged this week.
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 for neglecting to file income tax returns in 1999, 2000 and 2001.
