Editorial Reviews

Emmy nominated comedian/actor Tracy Morgan – star of 30 Rock and a former cast regular on Saturday Night Live – stars in his first-ever HBO stand-up special, Black and Blue, an hour of adults-only humor told in the quirky, shocking, matter-of-fact style that has earned Morgan a place in the upper echelon of today’s most sought-after comedians. Taped before a live audience at the Apollo Theatre in New York City, the stand-up special will feature Morgan’s comedic takes on politics (including meeting President Obama), the differences between white and black culture, celebrities, our Founding Fathers, sex, superheroes and more.

This was probably the worst stand up I have ever seen. I have seen a lot of stand up and this made me laugh maybe twice and that is out of an hour. Tracy is funny on TV shows, but he is vulgar and unfunny as a comic. No creativity at all, just crap and more crap. Watch someone who is deserving instead.

A skid mark on the undergarment of a flatulent Xenical addict is more pleasant than the hackneyed material Tracy Morgan presents in this utterly repugnant and metaphorically mephitic piece of mirthless, bovine fecal matter of a performance.

While I am a big fan of 30 ROCK, and Tracy Morgan is often a standout playing his Tracy Jordan alter-ego on the often brilliant sitcom, his standup act, as represented here, is strictly second tier.

BLACK AND BLUE, Morgan's initial foray on HBO, taped at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem, was the premium channel's highest rated comedy special of 2010. Practically every significant comedian of the past thirty years has appeared on the pay cable network's standup format. Some of them, like Chris Rock and George Carlin, have done hysterical, groundbreaking work. Others, including Jerry Seinfeld and Ellen DeGeneres, are brilliantly hilarious masters of the art form. Watching BLACK AND BLUE, it becomes quickly apparent that SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE alumnus Tracy Morgan simply doesn't have the sharp insights or sterling delivery of the best of his comedic counterparts.

The ultimate litmus test of a standup special like BLACK AND BLUE is how much it made me laugh. In Morgan's case... not much. Let's be clear. This is raunchy, adults-only fare. But Morgan's material, mostly dealing with well-trod topics like sex, the differences between blacks and whites, sex, drugs, Obama, sex, and terrorism lacks the fresh intelligence of a Chris Rock or Richard Pryor or Eddie Murphy. Morgan doesn't come close to those comedians' honest, whip-smart delivery that can leave an audience helpless with laughter and gasping in disbelief all at the same time.

Which isn't to say Tracy Morgan isn't a formidable comic presence. His ability to wring laughs from terrific writing is evident in every new episode of 30 ROCK. The key, though, is the writing. There are some chuckles here and there in BLACK AND BLUE, but overall, the material isn't all that compelling.

I saw this on tv recently and had to but it. Could not find it local
so I gave Amazon a shot. This DVD of Tracy is one of his best.
