Tracy Morgan makes stand-up comedy return

Tracy Morgan has returned to stand-up comedy for the first time since his horrific road accident in June 2014.

The 47-year-old actor and comedian was left with a traumatic brain injury and a broken leg after the crash in New Jersey but took to the stage at the New York Comedy Club on Saturday (12.12.15) for an "hilarious and inspiring" set about his recovery.

A source told the New York Post's Page Six: "The first thing he asked when the doctors told him he was in an accident [was] if his d**k was all right. He then went on to talk about speech therapy and how he had to explain to the therapist that [his brain wasn't injured], this was just his natural way of speaking."

He also reportedly joked that before his coma there were "three Kardashians, but now there are nine, and one of them has muscles".

Meanwhile, Tracy's '30 Rock' co-star Tina Fey hailed his remarkable recovery and admitted she is shocked that he survived.

She told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show: "I honestly can't believe that he made it. He was so frail before that. For him to have survived that, it's incredible."

Tracy is planning a stand-up comedy tour in February and previously said: "I'm leaving it in God's hands. Things are going to be all right. We're going to have a good time. We're not stressed out about it, we're going to have a good time doing it."
