Watch Tracy Morgan’s First Interview Since His Tragic Accident

Last night, former SNL and 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan returned to TV for the first time since an auto accident left him in a coma.

Talking to NBC’s Matt Lauer, Morgan explained that he has no memory of the accident and discussed his recovering process.

As reported by Vulture:

“Sometimes, emotionally, I don’t feel well,” he told Lauer. “I’m really focused on my memory coming back to me, my walking getting better.” Tearing up, Morgan explained that he’s been battling guilt and depression since the accident. The way he knows he’s fully recovered, he says, is when he’s ready to get back into comedy: “I love comedy, and I wonder how I’m going to be funny again, remembering my identity … I promise you: One day, when I’m 100 percent, I’m going to grab that mic, and I’m never going to let it go. I’m going to be the funniest I can be because I ain’t never going to take life for granted no more.”
