NEW YORK (AP) -- After making a comeback at the recent Emmy Awards and doing hosting duty on Saturday Night Live last week, Tracy Morgan announced Tuesday that he's embarking on a nationwide stand-up tour this winter.
The "Tracy Morgan: Picking up the Pieces" tour will hit the Winstar World Casino on Saturday, March 26, 2016. The tour begins Feb. 5 at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Ind.
Morgan was in a coma for two weeks following a June 2014 accident, when a truck on the New Jersey Turnpike crashed into the back of a van he was riding in. Comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair was killed in the crash.
Morgan made a surprise appearance at the Emmy Awards last month, with a more substantive turn as guest host on Oct. 17 of NBC'S "Saturday Night Live," the show where he was once a cast member. In one sketch, he was joined by his fellow cast members of "30 Rock," Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Jane Krakowski and Jack McBrayer.
"People are wondering, 'Can he speak? Does he have 100 percent mental capacity?'" he said in his opening monologue. "The truth is, I never did. I might even be a few points higher."
