Tracy Morgan voices the silk-robe-wearing puppet Spoonie Luv on Wednesday night’s episode of “Crank Yankers,” but the hotel receptionist he prank calls might be on to him.
Created by Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Carolla and Daniel Kellison, “Crank Yankers” makes all the crank phone calls you wish you’d made when you were a kid. Yankerville’s puppet citizens are voiced by celebrities and stand-up comedians who make real calls to real people.
Watch a clip of Morgan impersonating Spoonie Luv above, in which he propositions a hotel receptionist at “The Embarassy Suites” named Jenny to come visit the room he’s pretending to book and partake in his… festivities.
“Do you have cool people on your staff? Like people that could keep secrets?” he asks. “Do you have any ‘Do Disturb’ signs?”
And later, “What kinda toes you got? Your toes look like Skittles?”
But Jenny’s not as gullible as she lets on. She just laughs him off and tries to get off the phone — until Spoonie asks her to have his baby.
“What would we name our baby?” he asks just before she hangs up.
Her reply? “Tracy.”
“Crank Yankers” is executive produced by Kimmel and his younger brother Jonathan Kimmel, who also serves as showrunner. Carolla and Daniel Kellison also executive produce.
Tonight’s episode of “Crank Yankers” airs at 10:30 ET/PT on Comedy Central.
