Tracy Morgan is best known for his roles on “Saturday Night Live,” where he was a cast member for seven seasons and created many memorable characters. Following his success on “SNL,” he became a hit character on NBC’s Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning hit series “30 Rock,” starring as Tracy Jordan, the unpredictable lead of a variety show.

Morgan is also known for “The Tracy Morgan Show” and his stand-up comedy and TV specials, including specials on HBO and Comedy Central. He has headlined across the country and abroad on various tours and festivals. The far-famed comedian has appeared in numerous films as an actor and voice actor, including “Cop Out,” “First Sunday,” “The Longest Yard,” “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back,” “Head of State,” “Son of No One,” “Why Stop Now,” and he recently wrapped production on “Fist Fight,” premiering in 2017.

This is Morgan’s first tour in over two years, only appearing on television again late last year after a tragic six-vehicle accident that put him in a coma and took the life of his friend and fellow comedian James McNair.
