Tracy Morgan Announces 'Picking Up the Pieces' Comedy Tour After Traumatic Car Accident
By Alex Ungerman
Tracy Morgan is getting back to touring!
After hosting Saturday Night Live last week, the 46-year-old comedian has announced the "Picking Up the Pieces" comedy tour, where Morgan will continue his return to performing following a devastating car crash last June that left him in critical condition and with a traumatic brain injury. The accident also claimed the life of his friend and fellow comedian, James "Jimmy Mack" McNair.
"It’s just like falling off a bike and getting back on, that’s all: you don’t forget where the pedals are," Morgan said in a statement about the upcoming tour. "People can expect more of what I did before. It’s me: funny + truth = Tracy Morgan. I can’t wait to get back to ya’ll; city to city, state to state, watch me operate."
ET caught up with Morgan at the ceremony awarding the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor to Eddie Murphy in New York City on Sunday, where the comedian candidly opened up about his emotional comeback.
"It was magical. It was electric, the love and support," Morgan said about his well-received SNL showing. "It was great being back home hanging with the cast and crew. It was great. I'm gummy, goddammit."
"Just hanging out with the cast, the crew," he continued. "They were so supportive. It felt good, just to be funny."
