The New Black Plays Blue


Tracy Morgan played Carnegie Hall last week. It isn’t clear how many people got pregnant, though there were apparently plenty of walkouts — thanks to lines like this:

“Obama is really changing the White House, because he and Michelle will have the first presidential sex tape out,” he said to a stunned crowd.

Here’s Tracy’s remarkable NPR interview he did last month, promoting his book  I Am the New Black.

  1. That was a pretty bold joke and I'm sure there were many more where it came from. I'm always shocked to hear that people walked out; did they not understand their plans for the evening?

    • Well, exactly. I loved his line about how if you want clean Tracy, watch television.

  2. "It turns out that some New Yorkers really can't take a joke — especially when it's unspeakably filthy."

    Yes, New Yorkers are famous for being ingénues. I think that sentence would be more accurate if it said that NY'ers can't take jokes about Obama.
