The Palace Theatre - Tracy Morgan

Tracy Morgan is the wildly unpredictable comic who rocketed to fame on Saturday Night Live, where he spent seven seasons and created memorable characters such as "Astronaut Jones" and "Brian Fellows." Subsequently he went on to star in his own comedy series "The Tracy Morgan Show" and voiced "Spoonie Luv" on Comedy Central's "Crank Yankers." He is the Emmy-nominated actor behind the sly and ingenious character Tracy Jordan on NBC's award-winning hit sitcom, 30 Rock.
