30 Rock stars crash into London

judah friedlander world champion 30 Rock

You wait yonks for one ‘30 Rock’ star to visit London, and then two come along at once…

First off, self-proclaimed ‘World Champion’ Judah Friedlander (aka, trucker hat-donning Frank Rossitano) has announced a three-night run at the Soho Theatre in June. ‘World champion of what?’ we hear you ask, in your heads (we can read minds, you know). Well, pretty much everything: stand-up athletics, martial arts, seduction… Look out for our interview with him coming soon.

Tracy Morgan as Tracy Jordan - 30 Rock

Plus, Tracy Morgan has just announced a one-off show at the Hammersmith Apollo, which goes on sale this Friday April 26 at 9am. Morgan – who plays diva-ish mega-star Tracy Jordan (subtle name change, you see) on the show – has just returned from a run at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, where he totally bombed, with reviewers disappointed by his base, unsophisticated stand-up. Plus, he was heavily criticised in 2011 for an onstage rant where he reportedly ‘joked’ that if his son announced that he was gay he ‘would pull out a knife and stab that little nigger to death’. Will his Hammersmith show be a smarter hour of stand-up? There’s only one way to find out…
