Big Names to Hit Stage at Hot 97’s Annual April Fool’s Day Show

Here’s one way to celebrate the first of April. Hot 97 holds its annual April Fool’s Day comedy show at the Theater at Madison Square Garden. The night of laughs is also coordinated by Caroline’s.

The event is hosted by Tracy Morgan, stand-up comic and actor, late of 30 Rock. He’ll be joined by Hot 97’s own morning show co-host Cipha Sounds.

Now in its 19th year, some of the hottest comedians will take the stage, among them JB Smoove, known to audiences for his role on Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Jay Pharoah, a cast member at Saturday Night Live since 2010.

“It’s like all my dreams coming true at once! Not only do I get to perform at the greatest comedy show in New York City, at the most famous venue on planet earth, but I get to co-host with my biological father, Tracy Morgan,” Sounds jokes. “I get to make people laugh and have a family reunion all in one.”

More information about purchasing tickets can be find on the Hot 97 Web site.
