Just days after helping deliver one of the most memorable Saturday Night Live episodes in recent memory, Tracy Morgan has announced his return to the comedy circuit with his extensive 2016 tour perfectly entitled Picking Up the Pieces. The tour, set to begin in February in Indiana, keeps Tracy trekking the globe through May.
As the tour’s name suggests, Tracy’s return to the spotlight has been riddled with obstacles following the fatal June 2014 traffic accident that left the former Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock star in a coma and fatally wounded fellow comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair. During an emotional appearance at the Emmys last month, Tracy thanked his fans and industry friends for inspiring him to return to comedy.
However, Tracy’s proper comeback moment occurred when he took the stage to host Saturday Night Live for the first time since the tragic accident. "People are wondering, ‘Can he speak? Does he have 100 percent mental capacity?'" Tracy joked in the opening monologue. "The truth is, I never did. I might even be a few points higher."
