(NEWS.COM.AU) — Tracy Morgan’s act at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival caused outrage among audience members and has sparked debate among comics.

Disgusted comedy fans stormed out of Hamer Hall when the visiting American comedian let fly with a sexist rant on stage at the weekend.

An outpouring of anger hit social media after Morgan’s two sold-out shows on Saturday night, with guests urging others to boycott future performances citing extreme misogyny and lack of humour.
