On Friday, October 26, comedian Tracy Morgan called in to WEEI 93.7 FM in Boston for a terrific, wide-ranging interview. The sometimes controversial comedian talked about many fellow comics and actors, including the late Chris Farley, and also gave his thoughts about censorship and what is or is not off limits to a comedian.
When asked about the difference between his persona on stage and off, Morgan joked, ”Off stage I’m a little bit more subdued. I usually don’t run down the street with my underwear off.”
Morgan also mentioned Geroge Carlin’s “seven dirty words” saying that curse words to him are a different language he uses to express himself. “I’m sure Mitt Romney uses it (too), but nobody sees it,” he joked.
Morgan is asked whether he would ever make fun of someone with cerebral palsy. He sounded a little defensive, but ultimately concluded that there’s nothing wrong with that. As he puts it, he’s not there to make fun of people in a mean spirited sort of way.
