Back in 2019, Tracy Morgan did an interview with Willie Geist at his home in New Jersey for Sunday Today. (Fun fact: This was a couple weeks before we did our own interview with the comedian to promote The Last O.G.). And Wednesday night, Geist was on The Late Show and recounted the crazy story that happened when he went to interview Tracy that day.
On camera, Morgan was giving Geist a tour of his extravagant home. Part of this tour was going to the garage to show off all his cars, including a Lamborghini SUV. But, as he approached the garage, Morgan discovered the car was missing.
“We come around the corner,” Geist recounts, “Lambo’s not there. We ask around to members of the staff. Is it at the car wash? Is it getting detailed? Does the wife have it? Nobody could find it. He looks me in the eye and goes ‘Willie, call the cops. Somebody stole my Lambo.”
Geist does as the 30 Rock star requested, and wound up going as far as having to direct police to the scene of the crime (Morgan’s garage), all with cameras rolling. However, none of this footage made its way into the final product. And it turns out, the Lamborghini was tracked down and had in fact been stolen.
Never a dull moment with Tracy Morgan.
