Chris Tucker, hailed as one of the funniest comics around, has come a long way since his stand-up comedy days on Def Comedy Jam. Starring in box-office smashes that include one of the top-grossing comedies of all time, "Rush Hour 2," as well as "Friday," "Dead Presidents," "Money Talks" and the original "Rush Hour" (which has grossed $250 million worldwide), Tucker has clearly proven himself to be one of Hollywood's fastest-rising comedians. With his unique voice, fast-paced humor and animated facial expressions, Tucker entertains all audiences and has left a lasting impression on the American psyche.

The 36TH NAACP IMAGE AWARDS is proudly sponsored by DaimlerChrylser, American Airlines, Bank of America, Blockbuster, Colgate Palmolive, General Motors and Verizon.

Founded in 1909, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. Its half-million adult and youth members throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities and monitor equal opportunity in the public and private sectors.
