staying aliveEvery once in a while, Saturday Night Live will have a cast member that is so funny that he becomes a star right in front of our own very eyes like Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, and even Tracy Morgan. They are able to transition from stand up to skit comedy all the way to movie stars, but when tragedy hits, it really sucks. That is what it seemed like for Tracy Morgan who was hit by a Walmart truck in an accident that almost killed the 30 Rock star. For a very long time, we wondered if Tracy would ever be the same again and whether he would bounce back or not. In his very first stand up comedy special since the accident, Tracy Morgan was back to prove that he still had it and Netflix was right there to support him with his very own Netflix comedy special Tracy Morgan: Staying Alive. In the special recorded at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, NJ, he tackles all sorts of subjects like meeting God while in a coma, being in heaven, Kim Khardashian and the others, the dark side of his family, Mike Tyson, Ancestory.com, therapy, Tiger Woods, Flavor Flav, strip clubs, Madonna, DUI, his first and current marriage, and so much more in this hilarious special.

staying alive 2I have to say that I loved the intro to the special only because I was a huge fan of the film Saturday Night Fever, but more importantly it’s just nice to see him back. I was a huge fan of Tracy;s when it came to his films so I honestly didn’t know what to expect out of the comedy special, but I was very happy when it was over. I say that because I honestly could not stop laughing at so many of his jokes. One of my favorite jokes of the night came when he was talking about his grandma and how she is always praying. He always tries to hide from her or pretend to be in the coma, but one day he had enough. He woke up and told her that he had met God in heaven before and she of course asked what he had told Tracy and he responded back. He said, “Tell your grandma to shut the fu** up. Between her and Tim Tebow, I can’t get any sleep.” It just stuff like that and when he talks about his various family members, it gets really funny. The punchlines to his jokes is where the true genius of him lies and the way he delivers them makes you unable to hold a straight face. I definitely suggest checking this special out from him if you get a chance. I am giving the special an A- for a final grade cause sometimes you need some dirty comedy in your life to counter act the smart comedy.
