Tracy Morgan is returning to Unmasked! The film, tv and stand up star will be the next guest on SiriusXM’s critically acclaimed Unmasked series in New York City with host Ron Bennington.
Morgan and Bennington will tape the hour at SiriusXM’s headquarters in New York City in front of a live audience on Monday, April 2, at 11:40am at the Sirius XM Studios. He’s coming in to promote his new show, The Last OG, which premieres April 3rd on TBS.
Morgan last appeared on Bennington’s Unmasked series in 2014 just two months before a horrific collision with a Walmart truck left Tracy unable to perform. The episode was a favorite- full of laughs, tears, and the kind of philosophy that only Tracy can deliver. Tracy talked about women, comedy, God, reincarnation, his father, growing up in poverty, and his comedy idols- it was an unforgettable hour, and there’s no doubt he will deliver again.
Morgan is an American cultural institution. He got a big break from Martin Lawrence, with a guest appearance on Martin, and had a role in a sketch series before being snatched up by SNL in 1996 where he spent eight years. His Saturday Night Live characters, especially Astronaut Jones and Brian Fellow, were fast classics. It wasn’t long before NBC wanted him back, and Tracy Morgan became Tracy Jordan for eight more years on 30 Rock. Beyond television, Morgan is loved for his stand up, and has had quite a few movie roles. Since his accident and subsequent rehabilitation, Tracy has hosted SNL, toured, released a Netflix special, and more but the biggest excitement surrounds the debut of The Last O.G. co-starring superstar-in-the-making Tiffany Haddish.
The Unmasked series documents the careers of the very best comedy writers, directors, filmmakers, actors, screenwriters, satirists, political comedians, comedic musicians and of course, stand up comedians in the business. With over 150 episodes so far, Unmasked is a veritable archive of the greatest comedy of our time. Past Unmasked guests have included Joan Rivers, Bob Newhart, Amy Schumer, Dan Aykroyd, Simon Pegg, Paul Feig, Gilbert Gottfried, Bobcat Goldthwait, Louis C.K., David Brenner, Brian Regan, Patrice O’Neal and over 100 more comedy greats.
