Event Preview: Tracy Morgan at the Wilbur Theatre

Hilarious one liners,never ending jokes and the over the top funny impressions.... There isn't a better way to kick off March than seeing funny man Tracy Morgan this weekend!

Out on the road and cracking up audiences everywhere, this fearless comic is coming right to you Boston! Morgan is perhaps best known for his role as Tracy Jordon on the award winning TV series 30 Rock. He has made quite the name for himself with is his racy humor and bawdy jokes. This one of a kind occasionally controversial stand up comic is for sure an act you need to see live!

The comedian, who rose to fame on Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, is at the tail end of his Excuse My French tour, which makes a stop at the Wilbur Theatre this Saturday, March 1st. The stand-up show, he’s been quoted as saying, serves as a bit of a reintroduction to who he is—which is not Tracy Jordan, the outrageous character he played on “30 Rock.”

He Said What?! Tracy Morgan Shocks with Homophobic Rant

So not funny! Reports claim that actor/comedian Tracy Morgan was booed and bashed after a stand-up routine in Nashville, Friday 06/03/11 went out of hand. Comedy patrons were not prepared for the hateful tirade, whether or not he's joking, the 30 Rock star was spewing out against the LGBT community.

Unfortunately, not all members who witnessed the fiasco were disturbed. In fact, they actually followed up his insults with cheers, audience member Kevin Rogers (from Truth Wins Out) says. Alas, this is not-so-liberal Tennessee.
