Tracy Morgan, star of “30 Rock” and former “Saturday Night Live” cast member, will perform on Thursday, March 28, at the Dennison Theatre on the University of Montana campus as part of his “Excuse My French” stand-up tour.
Morgan was first introduced to TV audiences in his role as “Hustleman” on the hit comedy series “Martin.” He went on to join SNL in 1996 where he appeared for seven seasons and created such memorable characters as “Astronaut Jones” and “Brian Fellows.” After leaving SNL, Morgan went on to star in his own comedy series “The Tracy Morgan Show” and voiced “Spoonie Luv” on Comedy Central’s “Crank Yankers.”
Currently starring on NBC’s Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning “30 Rock,” Morgan appears opposite Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin as “Tracy Jordan,” the unpredictable star of Lemon’s (Fey) hit variety show, “TGS with Tracy Jordan.” In 2009 Morgan received his first Emmy nomination for this role in the supporting actor category; in the past five years he has also been nominated for the Supporting Actor NAACP Image Award.
Morgan made his animation debut in Jerry Bruckheimer’s “G-Force” with the character “Blaster,” one of the highly trained secret agent guinea pigs dispatched to save the world. The film opened at No. 1 in U.S. box offices and was celebrated by audiences worldwide. In 2010, Morgan starred in “Death at a Funeral,” a remake of the 2007 British movie of the same name, also featuring Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, and Danny Glover. In 2011, Morgan also headlined the New York Comedy Festival, which featured comedians such as Bill Maher, Andy Samberg and Patton Oswalt, among others.
