Why It’s So Great To Be Tracy Morgan on 30 Rock

Tracy Jordan

As I watched yet another what I’d consider to be flawless episode of 30 Rock yesterday I couldn’t help thinking how amazingly funny Tracy Morgan is.   And as I tried to pinpoint it the show perfectly pointed it out when his character uttered something along the lines of “I’m just glad all these people tune it to laugh at what I say” or “how I act” to his wife.

I mean what the hell is so funny about Tracy Morgan as Tracy Jordan?  Seriously if I asked myself a million times I would always answer with the following: “he just is.”  Clearly his dialogue on the show is incredibly well written and it ties in perfectly with his incredibly naive character, but it’s more than that.

I mean how often do you see a character that says his lines as if he’s reading them be so damned funny?  If this were to happen on any other show you’d be like “this guy sucks, he’s probably reading from queue cards.”  But the fragmented speaking, funny gestures and almost “sweetness” to Jordan simply makes me laugh my ass off.

And to be perfectly honest, Jordan wasn’t all that funny on SNL until the show started to pick up on this stuff, as in the Doo Doo Brown and Brian Fellows characters.  Bottom line, just make fun of Jordan for being himself.

At least that’s how I see it.  And as long as they stick with that formula I shall continue to laugh wholeheartedly during this show.   Morgan stepped into a goldmine with this character and I’m happy for the guy.
