Tracy on One Thing You Might Not Know About Him

"You might know me from SNL, 30 Rock, and The Last O.G., but what you don't know is I'm the great-grandson of Jacques Cousteau and I'm very proud of that, okay? And another thing you don't know is that I love sharks. Sharks are my favorite sea creatures of all."

Tracy on Discovering His Love of Sharks

"I've been into sharks ever since I saw Jaws as a kid. Any fish that could make white people scream and scurry out of the ocean like that, is alright with me."

"There are over 400 species of sharks, and just like the '90s Knicks, they're all cool."

Tracy on Great Whites

"I love this shark cause we've got a lot in common. We both have got big appetites. We both can regulate our body temperatures, and we have never been kept in captivity successfully. You can ask my mom."

Tracy on Traveling for a Good Meal

"These white sharks love seals so much, they'll follow them as far as Alaska. Hey, I get it. I travel all the way to South Carolina for my favorite ribs."

Tracy on Whale Sharks

"This is one of my all-time favorites, a whale shark. I love these sharks because they get up to 40 feet long and can weigh 15 tons. Like Shaq in the off-season."

Tracy on Blue Sharks

"These are my favorite sharks... They use their long pectoral fins to ride the ocean currents like aquatic hitchhikers. Not a bad way to see the world if you're a shark. Hell of a lot cheaper than a cruise ship, that's for sure."

Tracy on Shark Conservation

"Sharks have been around for 450 million years, surviving five mass extinctions, six if you count my marriage. But it's up to us to make sure they keep surviving."
