Tracy Morgan has kept it very 100 in a series of interviews following his return to the stage last year, including a particularly memorable appearance on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show in which he joked that Trump's popularity might force him back into a coma. But there's no interview format quite like the loose vibes of The Howard Stern Show, a flexibility Morgan put to good use during a discussion that was as emotional as it was reliably hilarious.
"I was struggling to say words," Morgan told Howard Stern Tuesday, referencing his recovery following the fatal traffic collision that took the life of fellow comedian James McNair and left Morgan severely injured. "I couldn't walk. I got a wound on my ankle that look like a horseshoe. You could pull my skin back and see my bone."
Morgan was briefly in a wheelchair during his recovery period, joking to Stern that the fatal collision didn't pause his appreciation for low, low prices. "When I was in that wheelchair, I still shopped at Walmart," Morgan joked. "You still can't beat their prices!" The Saturday Night Love star also thanked his fellow 30 Rock alum Alec Baldwin for helping him slim down, though a certain part of his body has apparently enjoyed the opposite effect.
"My dick got bigger, too," Morgan said. "Just the head. The head is more bulbous." He added that he even had a "wardrobe malfunction" during physical therapy. "The dickhead popped out and the mouth of my dick was grinning at her," Morgan explained.
