Chris Tucker Jokes About Owing Money To The IRS

10/14/2011 2:30pm EDT

Chris TuckerFunnyman 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.
