Blistering every seat in the house with his scorching wit, actor, comedian, and author Tracy Morgan brings his inimitable act to the historic Pabst Theater for a night of raucous, adult-only hysterics. On Saturday Night Live, the New York native made his mark with impersonations of Maya Angelou and Star Jones, as well as with original characters such as the lovably spaced-out animal expert Brian Fellow, who dispensed various tidbits of nonsensical animal knowledge: “Rabbits can’t cut their own hair…that’s crazy!” He then joined Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin on the recently ended 30 Rock to play Tracy Jordan, a sketch TV star whose successes and eccentricities mirrored those of Morgan’s real life.
Today, Morgan keeps up with his fans through his Twitter account, prompting Rolling Stone to dub him one of the 25 Funniest People on Twitter for random updates and observations, such as “I’m trying to sell a case of Chuck Norris chest hairs on the black market.” When he takes the stage at Pabst Theater, Morgan will likely serve up similarly outrageous comments in an obstreperous standup act sure to tickle even the most irascible ribs until they weep with joy.<p> Warning: contains bleeped-out cursed words and a standup routine delivered sitting down
Captain Frederick Pabst contributed to Milwaukee’s status as a cultural landmark of the upper Midwest by building Pabst Theater, formally known as Das Neue Deutsche Stadt-Theater, in 1895. According to legend, when he was informed that his theater had burned to the ground, the brewing magnate interrupted his European vacation to wire home the order to “Rebuild at once!”—and 11 months later, the stage was completed anew. Where the old theater honored German artists by having their names inscribed along the cornice of the auditorium, the new building featured an international consortium of cultural notables. The theater’s globe-spanning influences were made even more apparent with the installation of an Austrian crystal chandelier and an Italian marble staircase.
