NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Tracy Morgan marked another milestone Monday night.
The 46-year-old comedian made his triumphant return to the stage for the first time since suffering serious injuries last year in a crash on the New Jersey Turnpike.
He performed two stand-up shows in Manhattan at the Stand and the Comedy Cellar, ahead of hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.
In June 2014, Morgan and others were returning from a show in Delaware when a Walmart tractor-trailer slammed into the back of their limo van.
Comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair was killed.
Morgan suffered head trauma, a broken leg and broken ribs.
