In honor of his proven track record of power as a box office funnyman, the world's theater owners named Tucker Comedy Star of the Year at ShoWest 2001.
In 2002 Tucker traveled to Africa, along with U2 singer Bono and U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Paul O'Neill, on a fact-finding mission to see how U.S. money would help the African countries wrought with AIDS, unsanitary living conditions and hunger. Deeply affected by what he saw, Tucker has since been a diplomat of sorts, making it his mission to continue to raise awareness and money to combat the AIDS crisis in Africa. In recognition of his record of accomplishments and his potential to contribute to shaping the future of the world, Tucker was recently made a Young Global Leader by the Forum of Young Global Leaders.
