Three years ago, Tracy Morgan—the guy responsible for such comedy gold as SNL‘s Brian Fellows and 30 Rock‘s Tracy Jordan—almost died in a severe car accident that resulted brain trauma. In the past several months he’s returned to comedy.
Now Netflix has announced a new stand-up special from Morgan called Staying Alive. This will he his first special since his brain injury and having to learn to walk again. His previous special, Bona Fide, premiered on Comedy Central less than two months before the accident. Staying Alive was filmed at the Count Basie Theatre in New Jersey, and it hits Netflix on May 16.
