Tucker may be down, but he's by no means out. He’s back on the stand-up stage with The IRS Tour, as he informally calls it. He's enjoying a residual glow emitting from a small but notable role in the critically respected Silver Linings Playbook. Following in the path of comedy idols Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor, Tucker recently filmed his stand-up show for a feature-length movie. There's even talk of a Rush Hour 4. Wait a minute, isn't that how he got into this in the first place?
