Tracy Morgan Delivers A Verbal Smackdown To Two Former SNL Colleagues

In his upcoming autobiography "I Am the New Black", 30 Rock star gets candid about his time on SNL. Apparently, all was not well at Studio 8H between Tracy and fellow cast members Chris Kattan and Cheri Oteri. Tracy's days on the sketch comedy series weren't all bad because he did have good things to say about some of his other co-workers.

In the clip below from the talk show "The Young Turks", hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian play an excerpt from the audio version of "I Am the New Black" where Tracy talks about his SNL co-workers. Cenk and Ana later discuss the excerpt with "The Young Turks" producer Jayar Jackson.

I found Tracy's comments about Kattan and Oteri refreshing and hilarious! Too often, celebs give marshmallow answers (which are probably lies) when asked about their experiences working with other stars. The release date for "I'm the New Black" is Tuesday, October 20th.

I could tell you inside stories about SNL that would curl a bald man's hair. Many people found it to be a rather nasty work environment, with a lot of vain, clueless and often prickly people running amok. Morgan's story doesn't surprise me in the least, and I would tend to think it's credible.

X. Dell: "curl a bald man's hair"... that's a good one! I have heard some stories about SNL, but not many. One day, I may pick up the book "Live from New York" that gives a behind the scenes look at the show.
