More than a year after being in a life-threatening car accident, Tracy Morgan made a triumphant return to the Emmy’s stage last night, and he was a sight for sore eyes. As he walked onto the stage, Morgan received a standing ovation from a giddy crowd that included SNL and 30 Rock brethren like Lorne Michaels, Tina Fey, and Jane Krakowski.
Morgan, who suffered a traumatic brain injury during the accident, began his remarks on a serious note, thank doctors, family, and fans for their support. “I miss you guys so much,” he told the crowd. But it wasn’t long before the comedian started doing what he does best, which is make people laugh. Check it out above.
