Tracy Morgan has been hospitalized after collapsing at the Sundance Film Festival.

 

According to TMZ, the 30 Rock delivered a speech at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards in Park City, Utah, but soon after exiting the event passed out outside of the building.

 

A spokesperson for the Park City Medical Center, where Morgan is being treated, says no drugs or alcohol were found in the comedian’s system during his medical evaluation.

 

Earlier reports stated that the 43-year old funnyman appeared intoxicated while delivering his speech, but in a statement Morgan’s rep Lewis Kay says that the actor collapsed “from a combination of exhaustion and altitude … any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100% false.”

 

A diabetic, Morgan also had a kidney transplant in late 2010. He tweeted this about his latest medical incident, "Superman ran into a little kryptonite. The high altitude in Utah shook up this kid from Brooklyn."

 

He sounds in good spirits, here's hoping Tracy feels better real soon.
