Staff pick: Tracy Morgan at the Capitol Theatre

By Columbus Alive
From the June 6, 2013 edition

Many associate Tracy Morgan with his riotous, iconic work on “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock,” but the dude is one of the most exhilarating standup acts working today.

His material isn’t for the faint of heart and will have some racy jokes — I like to think of it as Wu-Tang meets Chris Rock, but with more drug and B.J. references. Maybe that’s why Morgan’s current tour is called Excuse My French. Whatever the case, Morgan is hilarious and electrifying every time he hits the stage.
