And we thought Bob Saget goofing on molesting Kimmy Gibler fromFull House
was troubling. That's nothing, apparently. In a bizarre email addressed to "Tracy Morgan ticket buyers," Comedy Works went so far as to warn show-goers that the performance is "the most extreme in nature that we can possibly express," and offered to refund ticket purchases if buyers decided to opt out of the show, which went down in three performances over the weekend.

Dear Tracy Morgan ticket buyer,
Thank you for your recent ticket purchase. We always appreciate your business and we especially want to make sure you are aware that Tracy's show is very, very dirty. His stand up show is not what you might expect from seeing him on 30 Rock or Saturday Night Live. His show is the most extreme in nature that we can possibly express. If this show is not for you, we understand and will happily refund this show and recommend some other amazing shows.
If you are interested in a refund, please REPLY TO THIS E-MAIL or call 720-274-6800 immediately. You must reply by WED Aug 4 at 12:00 noon in order to receive a refund.
Thank You, Comedy Works
The email went out two days before the refund deadline, indicating Comedy Works was not particularly keen to actually refund tickets. All the same, unless the show featured Morgan actually defecating onstage, we can't see how it could be that much more offensive than a Westword staff meeting. As far as we can tell, mostly Morgan just says "motherfucker" a lot.
But judge for yourself. Just remember, whether it offends your personal delicate sensibilities or not, it is seriously NSFW.
