Tracy Morgan Heads Out on Comedy Tour After Wrapping ’30 Rock’
Tracy Morgan likely has a bit of free time on his hands now that “30 Rock” has wrapped up its NBC run. Fortunately for his fans, he’s using that time for a new comedy tour later this year.
Morgan will take his “Excuse My French” tour on the road for about two months starting May 2 at the Uptown Theater in Kansas City, Missouri. He will then make his way around the U.S., ending the jaunt with a June 30 show at the Fillmore Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina. Other cities the comedian will visit include Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Seattle, Denver, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
Between now and then, Morgan will take the tour to Australia, and will perform a string of U.S. engagements in March and April that are not officially part of the tour.
Morgan first became known to a widespread audience as Hustleman on “Martin,” followed by seven seasons on “Saturday Night Live.” After a brief stint on his own “The Tracy Morgan Show,” he began appearing as Tracy Jordan on “30 Rock,” and performed the role during all seven seasons of the show. He also has appeared in a slew of movies, including “Half Baked,” “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back,” “The Longest Yard,” “Superhero Movie” and “Death at a Funeral.”
During a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Morgan was asked what kind of topics he would be speaking on during this tour.
“Sex, politics, my life, my experiences, the pink elephant in the room,” he continued. “I love to dwell in places where people are most uncomfortable. People are most uncomfortable with sex. So that’s where I like to dwell. Why do you think most guys aren’t good at it? We don’t get enough practice, ladies, being so stingy with it. We need to get this world back to making love instead of fighting wars. I’d rather see babies being born than being put in a coffin.”
