*Tracy Morgan took the stage Monday night at the Comedy Cellar in New York City and performed his first standup set since his June 2014 accident.
Morgan’s longtime friend comedian James McNair was killed and other passengers were injured when a Walmart truck slammed into the group’s limo on the New Jersey Turnpike. The accident left Morgan in a coma for two weeks with severe injuries.
“My first time on stage in 16 Months at the #ComedyCellar! Picking up the pieces!” he tweeted along with a photo of himself on stage.
Perhaps he was tuning up for his return to “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. He’ll host the show on which he appeared as a cast member from 1996 to 2003.
