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.
