Tracy Morgan has still got it!
The Saturday Night Live alum made a surprise return to stand-up at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles on Sunday, where he joked about his scary 2014 car accident, in which a Wal-Mart truck struck the limo bus Morgan was riding in on the New Jersey Turnpike. The comedian was seriously injured in the crash, and his friend, comedy writer James McNair, was killed.
Von gushed to ET about the surprise set, saying, "It was like seeing an Angel. When he smiled that Tracy smile, the whole room felt graced. God is good for giving us back Tracy Morgan."
Meanwhile, Morgan talked to ET's Leanne Aguilera at Saturday's Creative Arts Emmy Awards -- Morgan is nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his SNL hosting appearance -- where he opened up about his survival and recovery from the tragic accident.
"It means everything," Morgan said of his nomination. "I came back from a place that nobody probably thought I was going to come back from."
