Tracy Morgan is a comedian with a fighting spirit that leaves us in awe nearly a year since he was involved in a car accident that nearly cost him his life. After battling back from the coma the accident put him in, Morgan had a long road to recuperation, but he's finally back in top performance and returned to his old stomping ground, Saturday Night Live (SNL) to bring viewers the funny once more. His return was such a joy that his 30 Rock costars actually had a reunion during his hosting of the show last night.

Studio 8H stage saw a much anticipated show on Saturday night, as Tracy returned to the show that put him on the map, and he returned with a whole lot of fanfare. Whether or not the comedian was still funny and able to deliver up those punchlines was not a worry his fans had as they camped out to get tickets to the October 17 SNL show. Many said it really did not matter if this SNL was funny or not, but the chance to see Tracy Morgan in action again would be well worth it.

"I'm back! It feels so good to be here."
"I just want to say one last thing, Tracy, from the heart and this part is no joke. We're so happy that you're okay and we're happier that you're ready to make people laugh again."

"I was in a terrible car accident more than a year ago. It was awful, but it also showed me how much love and support I have in this world … People are wondering. 'Can he speak? Does he have 100% mental capacity?' The truth is, I never did. I might even be a few points higher."

NBC News highlighted that during his recuperation, Morgan took the time to reach out to Lorne Michaels, executive producer and creator of SNL, about his desire to return to the show as soon as he was back on his feet, and oh what a return it was.
