It has been a long road for Tracy Morgan following the car accident that left him fighting for his life in a hospital. The crash killed a friend of Morgan’s and landed the driver of the Walmart truck that was responsible (along with Walmart) in a whole heap of trouble.
Last year, at the Emmy Award ceremony, friend and fellow comedian Jimmy Kimmel notified the crowd that Tracy Morgan would be back, and alas, he was.
Somehow they kept this surprise secret, and at the very end of the Emmy broadcast, Tracy delivered the most touching and hilarious few lines. It was the perfect end to the evening, and it’s so nice to have the hilarious Tracy Morgan back.
Pay special attention to the clear emotion in the faces of the celebrities in the audience, especially the reactions of his friends from “30 Rock,” Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski. It really is moving.
