Tracy Morgan – “Turn it Funny”
Blistering every seat in the house with his scorching wit, actor, comedian, and author Tracy Morgan brings his inimitable act to the stage 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 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.” During his live set, 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.
The Nordland Plaza Nickelodeon may have changed its name a few times in the nearly 125 years since its founding, but its reason-for-being remains the same: to keep Cincinnatians entertained. The theater began life as a vaudeville house, passed a few years as a German-film center, and eventually became a combination restaurant and venue. After a makeover and pep-talk in the 1980s, the modern-day Bogart’s welcomes up to 1,500 audience members to its concerts, comedy shows, and burlesque performances. Within, six bars keep guests hydrated and the dance floor stays as packed as the events calendar.
