Tracy Morgan takes on Max in a new original special, Tracy Morgan: Taking it too farwhich will officially debut on the platform starting Thursday, August 17.
The two-time Emmy-nominated actor and comedian lets it all out on stage in his first Max stand-up special, which was taped live in front of an audience at the Wilbur Theater in Boston, Massachusetts. As teased in the trailer above, Tracy Morgan doesn’t shy away from topics that are important to him, like dating in your fifties, along with the unexpected side effects that come with it.
Morgan’s dysfunctional family will also be discussed, as well as his attempts to reverse the gentrification of Brooklyn. Most importantly, though, Morgan will discuss his 2014 car accident that left him with multiple broken bones, a traumatic brain injury, and a substantial settlement from Walmart that he references in the trailer above.
“My Tinder profile is a Walmart truck leaving a bag of money on my front lawn,” Morgan tells the crowd, who respond with hearty laughter. Adding in a bit, Morgan says, “If you see me dancing to my cartoons in my kitchen on TikTok, all the money from Walmart is gone.”
Entertaining audiences for 30 years, Morgan is known for his work in television, film and stand-up comedy. Among his most notable credits are his series regular Saturday Night Live and his Emmy-nominated role as Tracy Jordan on the former NBC comedy 30 Rock in which he starred alongside Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin.
Tracy Morgan: Take it too far is written by Morgan, who executive produces the special with Emmy and Grammy winner Rikki Hughes. Meanwhile, Marcus Raboy is the director. Don’t miss out on the fun, catch the trailer above and stay tuned for the comedy special when it arrives on Max in August.
