Regular price $30.00

Garrett Isaac Morris (born February 1, 1937) is an American comedian, actor, and singer. He was part of the original cast of the sketch comedy program Saturday Night Live, appearing from 1975 to 1980. A church-choir singer from his youth, he trained at the Juilliard School of Music and graduated from Dillard University in 1958. One of Morris's best known characters on SNL was the Dominican baseball player Chico Escuela. As well as a recurring bit, used in the newscast segment "Weekend Update", involved Morris being presented as "President of the New York School for the hard of hearing" and assisting the newscaster by shouting the main headlines, in a parody of the then-common practice of providing sign language interpretation in an inset on the screen as an aid to the deaf viewer. In which this shirt is based on.

“I happen to dig being able to use whatever mystique I have to further the idea of peace.” -Garrett Morris
