8:00 PM

Tickets: $44.75 – $69.75

Starring for seven seasons on 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 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; he has in six past years also been nominated for a Supporting Actor NAACP Image Award. The “30 Rock” cast has also won the Screen Actors Guild Award for “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.”

While on a standup comedy tour in 2014, Morgan was critically injured in a serious car accident that prevented the comedian from continuing to work and tour. After months of rehabilitation, Tracy returned in an exclusive interview with TODAY Show’s Matt Lauer where he expressed his grief for the incident as well as his goals to come back to the entertainment world. The FXX Studios untitled comedy series created by RCG productions, toplined by Morgan, remains on hold. In June 2015, Tracy was selected to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the 2016 class. Starting September the same year, Morgan began filming his next role in the upcoming comedy, FIST FIGHT, staring Ice Cube and Charlie Day.

In April 2014, Tracy released a standup special for Comedy Central, titled Tracy Morgan: Bona Fide, which brought Comedy Central one of its largest viewership for a standup special in 2014. Even adding host to his line of credits, Morgan served as the 2013 Billboard Music Awards host, where he kept the laughs going on ABC’s LIVE broadcast in May.

Morgan currently resides in New Jersey with his wife and their daughter.
