Tracy Morgan is finding something to laugh about in his divorce from Megan Wollover.
“My wife took this whole social distancing thing a little too far,” the former “SNL” star — who split from his wife of five years during the coronavirus pandemic in July 2020 — joked during a stand-up set at Carolines on Broadway over the weekend.
“I called her up and asked if she was quarantining, and she responded, ‘Call it what you want… I left and I ain’t coming back!’”
We hear that Morgan, 53, also gave a shoutout to a high-profile member in the crowd – New York City mayor Eric Adams – though the comedian admitted he did not vote.
“The last time I voted it was for David Dinkins … and we all know how that turned out!” Morgan joked, referencing Dinkins’ term as NYC mayor from 1990-1993.
Despite not turning up at the polls, an eyewitness told Page Six that Morgan at one point told Adams he supports him.
Also taking in Morgan’s weekend shows were “Law & Order: SVU” star Ice-T and his wife, Coco, along with Robert O’Neill, the Navy SEAL who claims to have killed Osama bin Laden.

Morgan and Wollover 35, met on a blind date in 2011. They wed in 2015, just 14 months after a highway crash almost killed the comedian.
“After almost losing Tracy last year, I am so grateful to finally be married to the love of my life,” Wollover – who shares 8-year-old daughter Maven with Morgan – told People at the time.
But by 2020, Morgan said in a statement: “Sadly, after nearly five years of marriage, Megan and I are filing for divorce. This is a challenging time for all involved, so I ask that you please respect our privacy.”
Morgan was previously married to Sabine Morgan from 1987–2009. The two share three children: Gitrid, Malcolm and Tracy Morgan Jr.
