Tracy Morgan Going On First Stand-Up Tour Since Car Accident
Tracy Morgan will once again be taking his stand-up comedy act on the road, it was announced on Tuesday. The comic’s “Picking Up The Pieces” concert launches in February, marking Morgan’s first tour since his June 2014 car accident.
“Picking Up The Pieces” kicks off on February 5 at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana before traveling to additional venues in the U.S. and Canada. The tour is slated to go until the end of May, with stops along the way including Vermont, Ontario and Hawaii. Additional cities have yet to be announced. Morgan himself tweeted, “Heading back out on the road to bring the funny. Come see me.”
As Gossip Cop reported, Morgan made his triumphant return to the stage during a surprise appearance at the Emmy Awards in September. This past weekend, the former “Saturday Night Live” cast member returned to host the show, where Morgan reprised his characters Astronaut Jones and Brian Fellow. This past August, Morgan married long-time girlfriend Megan Wollover.
The comedian has made a slow but steady recovery since sustaining major injuries last year when his tour bus flipped over on the New Jersey Turnpike after getting hit by a truck. Fellow comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair was killed in the crash. Tell Gossip Cop what you think about Morgan going on a big comeback tour.
