Comedian Tracy Morgan has been rushed to the hospital. TMZ is reporting that the star of the hit TV show, “30 Rock” has been hospitalized for “flu-like symptoms and dehydration.” Morgan, who is 43-years old, was set to perform in a Denver comedy club this week, but ended up canceling the show after getting sick.
According to Matt Ferner at The Huffington Post, those in attendance thought that the cancellation was a joke at first.
“The emcee came out and told us that Tracy was feeling sick and wasn’t going to come on. The crowd thought it was a joke at first. But it quickly sunk in how serious this was when the manager of Comedy Works South came out to tell us that Tracy was hoping to feel well enough to perform for the 10 p.m. show, but that there was no way they were going to let him because he was in such bad shape,” he said.
TMZ also showed pictures of Morgan in a wheelchair being taken around the Denver airport on Sunday, before being flown back to New York.
This is the second time that Morgan has been sick. In January, he fell unconscious at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah. He also appeared to be “out of control, yelling and falling onto the ground.”
Morgan then issued this statement after the first incident:
“Superman ran into a little kryptonite. The high altitude in Utah shook up this kid from Brooklyn. Thank U 2 the hospital staff. Back at work 2morrow shooting 30 Rock. Holla at me! Gotta thank the AMAZING medical staff and all my supporters! Love you. #GOgiants @Giants #ALLIN,” he tweeted.
