We heard that comedy star Tracy Morgan will make his HBO stand-up debut this November in a solo comedy special, it was announced today by Nancy Geller, senior vice president, HBO Original Programming. Taping before a live audience at the Apollo Theatre in New York City Sept. 24 and 25, TRACY MORGAN: BLACK AND BLUE will feature the comedian’s unpredictable and freewheeling brand of humor in an uncensored setting.
“Tracy Morgan is a rare talent who is at the top of his game, and we are thrilled to bring him to HBO in what we expect to be an exciting, outrageous and no-holds-barred special,” observed Geller.
“The special is going to be all the elements: fire, water, earth, air, the comedy bender, the avatar of comedy experience,” says Morgan.
One of the stars of the current hit series 30 Rock, Morgan was a cast regular on Saturday Night Live from 1996 to 2003. In addition to headlining his own series, The Tracy Morgan Show, he has starred in such films as Death at a Funeral, G-Force, First Sunday, Cop Out, Superhero Movie and The Longest Yard.
Morgan received a 2009 Emmy® nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for 30 Rock, along with three NAACP Image Award nominations for Supporting Actor.
TRACY MORGAN: BLACK AND BLUE is written and executive produced by Tracy Morgan; executive produced by Dave Becky and David Miner; produced by Pat Tourk Lee and John Moffitt; directed by John Moffitt.
