Morgan, who recently had a kidney transplant donated by his X-GF back in December, certainly hasn’t skipped a New York minute. Morgan was discovered doing stand-up at the Apollo twenty-seven years ago and he is still capturing audiences coast to coast with his stand-up acts, the hit show “30 Rock,” and of course continuing to scare us on “Scare Tactics.”
Morgan was first welcomed in our homes when he appeared on the hit comedy series “Martin”. He went on to join the cast of SNL in 1996 for seven seasons.
The theater will lite up on Saturday February 26th when Morgan hits up the district. Get your tickets today for the 7pm or 9:45pm show time. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster or the Wilbur Theater dot com.
