For all of those who have not seen “What Men Want” yet, mark your calendars because the outrageously hilarious film will be released on blu-ray on May 7.
Tracy Morgan returned home to Brooklyn yesterday (March 28th), to celebrate the upcoming season two premiere of his TBS series The Last OG. Morgan and TBS partnered with Bedford Stuyvesant’s Hattie Carthan Community Garden, City Harvest, Grow NYC, Feeding America, Drive Change NYC and Trellis to host a special garden party to bring awareness for the need for community gardens and green spaces in urban communities throughout New York City.
Tracy Morgan is back with new show “The Last O.G.”
“The Last O.G.” is a comedy series co-produced by Morgan and Jordan Peele of Get Out fame. The show will premiere April 3rd on TBS.
According to TBS: The Last O.G. centers on Tray (Morgan), an ex-con shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released from prison for on good behavior after a 15-year stint. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay (played by emerging, breakout star actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish), has married an affable, successful white man (Ryan Gaul) who is helping raise the twins (Taylor Mosby & Dante Hoagland) Tray never knew existed. Wanting nothing more than to connect with his kids, but having neither the money to support them nor himself, Tray falls back on the skills he learned in prison to make ends meet while treading on unfamiliar territory.
In addition, “The Last O.G.” also stars Cedric the Entertainer as the head of the halfway house where Tray is staying, and Allen Maldonado as Tray’s cousin Bobby.
The comedy-centric show doesn’t spare anything as far as we can tell. It’s obvious Morgan and Peele are a good match.
The trailer for “The Last O.G.” can be seen below. Further information regarding the show can be found here.
Multi-talented performer Daniel J. Watts will turn the lens inward in his latest installment of “spoken-word preserves” at “The Jam: Only Child” at 9:30 p.m. at Joe’s Pub in the Public Theater on Monday, Feb. 19, 2018.
Seeing Tracy Morgan up and about was a sight for sore eyes as we’ve all awaited his return following his recovery. And his appearance as host of Saturday Night Live’s third episode of it’s 41st season gave us all reason to smile.
