US TV star Tracy to perform at the RCH

US comedian and TV star Tracy Morgan will launch A short UK tour with a show in Nottingham in October.

The performance will take place on Tuesday, October 15 at the Royal Concert Hall.

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.

The series came to an end in January.

Morgan will next focus on stand up with his national Excuse My French tour.

The last few years have been busy for Morgan as he balances between 30 Rock and a busy movie career while also continuing to travel the country for stand-up.

With comedy always as his foundation, Morgan has begun tackling dramas and independent films.

In 2010, he starred alongside Al Pacino and Channing Tatum in the crime-thriller The Son Of No One, which received Sundance Film Festival honours.

This year, Why Stop Now bowed, which was also an official selection at Sundance.

As a stand-up comic who has headlined across the country and abroad, Morgan was first introduced to television audiences in his role as Hustleman on the hit comedy series Martin.

He went on to join Saturday Night Live 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.
