NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – I think it’s safe to say that there is something wrong with Tracy Morgan.

Perhaps he’s allergic to mountainous regions.  In January, Morgan collapsed at an event for Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.  A physician at the Park City Medical Center told the press that Morgan was suffering from exhaustion and altitude sickness.

According to TMZ, now Morgan is suffering from a severe case of déjà vu. The comedian has cancelled a series of performances in Colorado this week.

The audience was already enjoying the opening act at Denver’s Comedy Works South on Saturday night, when the MC informed the crowd that Morgan was too sick to perform and their tickets would be refunded.

Morgan cancelled the rest of his Denver-based shows and instead spent his stay in a local hospital being treated for  flu-like symptoms and dehydration.

Tracy was seen on Sunday being wheeled around Denver International Airport in a wheelchair, waiting to board a flight back to New York.

It’s very possible that Tracy just happens to be prone to exhaustion, dehydration, the flu, and altitude sickness, but I wouldn’t rule out something slightly more serious being at the root of all this very public string of hospitalizations.
