Tracy Morgan is one of the most well-respected comedians in his field. Known for starring on seven seasons of NBC’s Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning “30 Rock,” Morgan appeared opposite Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin as “Tracy Jordan,” the unpredictable star of Liz Lemon’s (Fey) fictitious hit variety show, “TGS with Tracy Jordan.” Morgan received an Emmy Nomination in the Supporting Actor category for his work on the show and was nominated multiple years for the Supporting Actor NAACP Image Award.

We’re excited to host his upcoming Pittsburgh show in October.”

Morgan’s stand up special “Staying Alive” was released globally on Netflix in May 2017. Prior, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the 2016 class. Morgan was also nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series in 2016 for hosting an episode of the legendary “Saturday Night Live.”

Most recently, Morgan starred for four seasons on the TBS’ series “The Last OG” which he also executive produced.

Morgan has headlined across the country and abroad on various tours and festivals for his stand-up comedy. After leaving SNL, Morgan went on to star in his own comedy series, “The Tracy Morgan Show,” and he voiced “Spoonie Luv” on Comedy Central’s “Crank Yankers.” Additional film credits include “Cop Out,” the remake of the British film “Death at a Funeral,” “First Sunday” opposite Ice Cube and Katt Williams, “The Longest Yard” opposite Adam Sandler, “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back,” “Head of State,” “Son of No One,” “Why Stop Now” and “Fist Fight.”
