The funniest man on television, Tracy Morgan brings his unique style of hilarity to The Vic this Saturday. After stealing the show on “SNL, ” and having his inevitable, underrated sitcom cancelled, Morgan seems to have finally found his niche playing the titular star of “The Tracy Jordan Show” on the brilliant, Emmy Award-winning “30 Rock.” While the show does a terrific job of capturing Morgan’s energy and style, he is at his absolute best when allowed to cut loose. His appearances on late-night talk shows are the stuff of legend, including an appearance on Conan O’Brien where he declared, while wearing a leather civil war cap, “I fought for the North!” and a discussion on Jimmy Kimmel’s show about how he and his wife keep the excitement in their marriage: “We play ‘rape.’” Recent antics and an admission of alcohol abuse have caused some to dismiss Morgan as crazy, which is an injustice to his stellar timing and riffing. In reality, his machinations are not those of madness, but of abstract comedic genius. (Max Minor)
