Back in April, comedian and “Saturday Night Live” star, Tracy Morgan ensured Matt Lauer that he would be returning to comedy after suffering from a terrible car crash. Last year, Morgan was in a coma after a Wal-Mart truck struck the limousine that he and his friends were riding in. He suffered head trauma, broken ribs and a broken leg. Although Morgan made it out alive, his very good friend James “Jimmy Mack” McNair did not.
In a very gripping and emotional interview with Lauer, Tracy said that he would never leave comedy, even after such a tragedy. He made a promise that he would get back to making people laugh once he felt 100% better. The best part of it all is that he surely kept his word.
Tracy Morgan will be returning to SNL in October as he will be hosting the third episode of the new season. This will be his second time hosting the show.
In addition to Tracy returning to work, he also wed his long-time fiancee, Megan Wollover. Sunday's intimate ceremony was a very triumphant moment for the comedian. During an interview with “People” magazine, he shared that he did not want to marry Megan until he was well. “I don’t want to walk my wife down the aisle in a cane or a wheelchair,” he said. So I had to go hard in therapy… I had to get better.”
Tracy Morgan’s story is one to be reckoned with. In the blink of an eye, he could have lost it all, but instead he continued to push forward through tragedy and has risen above!
