Tracy Morgan was first introduced to television audiences in his role as “Hustleman” on the hit comedy series “Martin.” He went on to join “Saturday Night Live” in 1996 where he appeared for seven seasons and created such memorable characters as “Astronaut Jones” and “Brian Fellows.” Morgan has successfully turned his love for standup comedy tour into TV specials including HBO’s “Black & Blue” and Comedy Central’s “Tracy Morgan: Bona Fide.” He also headlined the famed “New York Comedy Festival” which featured acclaimed comedians including Bill Maher, Andy Samberg, and Patton Oswalt, among others. Amongst his long list of accolades, Morgan released his first book entitled I Am The New Black, a compilation of studied anecdotes and some of the more serious moments that shaped him and his career.
Over a year after his tragic car accident in June of 2014, Tracy Morgan is ready to make a comeback and Long Island is proud to support him. “It’s just like falling off a bike and getting back on, that’s all: you don’t forget where the pedals are”, Morgan says on getting back to touring, “People can expect more of what I did before. It’s me: funny + truth = Tracy Morgan. I can’t wait to get back to ya’ll; city to city, state to state, watch me operate.” Come to The Paramount on March 12th to watch Tracy Morgan operate live in an intimate setting.
