Is there anyone in entertainment as fearless and kinetic as comedian, actor, and ticking-time-bomb Tracy Morgan? Unlikely. Dude is practically the real-life version of his Saturday Night Live character Astronaut Jones; he's from another planet, and he's a purveyor of ignorant sexual diatribes.
Morgan is best known for his role on 30 Rock as the ever-so-slightly more insane version of himself, Tracy Jordan. On the show, he is the star of a fictional variety program TGS, written by his caretaker of sorts Liz Lemon. It is a Dada-ist version of reality.
Morgan is also well-known for his eight-season residency on SNL, where he became a household name with characters like Dominican Lou and Brian Fellows. To supplement his sketch comedy background, Morgan's talk show appearances (especially from the past two years) have earned him the unofficial Most Likely to Expose Bare Stomach On Air award. His movie appearances include Half Baked, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and How High, a.k.a. the best movies of all time. He's no stranger to controversy, especially with his offensive stand-up. Morgan is an utter bazooka of insults, ignorance, and sex banter. You'll be snarfing your rum and coke at his stand-up performance at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek (5550 NW 40th St., Coconut Creek), and getting a peek at that beautiful belly, if you're lucky.
