Comedian Tracy Morgan continues to put his career back on track after a traffic collision in 2014 that left him in a coma for two weeks. The AP reports that Morgan announced he will take his act on the road with a live stand-up tour.
The announcement follows high-profile guest appearances at the Emmys and as host of “Saturday Night Live.”
Morgan will kick off the nationwide tour, “Tracy Morgan: Picking Up the Pieces,” Feb. 5 at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Ind.
The report quotes Morgan’s opening monologue from the recent “SNL” appearance, in which he said: “People are wondering, ‘Can he speak? Does he have 100 percent mental capacity?’ The truth is, I never did. I might even be a few points higher.”
Included on the tour are three stops in New Jersey, including one performance in New Brunswick, about 20 miles from the scene of the collision, the report notes.
