According to Tracy Morgan‘s new book, the comic was dissed and patronized by his white costars on Saturday Night Live way back in the golden age.
“I had my finger on the pulse of urban comedy,” Morgan relates, but alas, the other SNL stars just didn’t get it and couldn’t manage to see his stellar future (though he concedes that Tina Fey was up in there and pretty cool about it).
And where did their refusal to latch on to Morgan’s blinding brilliance get these wannabe superstars? Nowhere, he gloats. “Where’s Chris Kattan now? Where’s Cher Oteri now? That bitch can’t even get arested!”
Of course Morgan can–for DUI.
