Normally you wouldn't even have to quote them:

--- snip (man Tcl) ---

 [9] Comments.

 If a hash character (``#'') appears at a point where Tcl is expecting
 the first character of the first word of a command, then the hash
 character and the characters that follow it, up through the next
 newline, are treated as a comment and ignored. The comment character
 only has significance when it appears at the beginning of a command.

--- snap ---

So the hash caracter on the second line of the following example does
not need to be quoted.

# This is a comment
MyCommand #123
