Actor/comedian Tracy Morgan appears on Spike’s Eddie Murphy: One Night Only last year.

Tracy Morgan may be best known for his eight seasons on Saturday Night Live as well as the role of Tracy Jordan on 30 Rock a part that his own stardom and troubles inspired — but it's the funnyman's standup shows that seem to get him the most headlines. During past appearances, he has alienated some audiences with material they felt was offensive to gays and the mentally challenged. And just last week, women's groups in Australia said people walked out of his sold-out shows after he launched a string of sexist material. Comedian Tommy Little said: "People walked out of Tracy Morgan's show because it was sexist, that's like walking out of a musical because there's too much singing." Find out for yourself at 8 p.m. Sunday, where tickets are $55-$65 at the Hard Rock, 5223 N Orient Road, Tampa. (813) 627-7625.
