When he was just a boy living in the Coney Island projects, being funny was about survival. With the right snap, Tracy could shut down the playground bullies who beat up on him and his physically disabled older brother. And with a wild enough prank, he could exact revenge on whoever stole his Pumas at the community pool. Later, being funny was about escape–from the untouchable sadness of his father’s death, from the desperation of the drug dealer’s trade, from the life and death battles waged on the streets of the South Bronx in the age of crack. But these days being funny is about living his dream–a dream born in the comedy clubs of Harlem and realized on shows like Martin andSaturday Night Live, and in movies like The Longest Yard and Half-Baked.
Tracy’s brutal honesty and trademark take-no-prisoners humor, keep audiences howling for more and seals his place as one of the most compelling and defining comedians of our time.
