Tracy Morgan performs for medical staff

Tracy Morgan performed a show for the doctors and nurses who saved his life last night (16.04.16).

The 47-year-old comic - who was in a coma and left with a traumatic brain injury and a broken leg after a road accident in New Jersey in June 2014 - admits performing at the State Theatre in New Brunswick for the medical staff from the nearby Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital was one of the "most special nights" of his life.

He told People magazine: "Last night was one of the most special nights of my life.

"To be standing on stage with the people that saved my life in the audience was an overwhelming experience. I will never fully be able to thank the doctors, nurses, first responders and everyone else that got me back on that stage enough.

"These people are heroes and I love them all from the bottom of my heart. "The only good thing that happened on that horrible night was that I was close to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital when the accident happened. God Bless them all."

The '30 Rock' star ended the evening with an "emotional" thank you for hospital staff.

A source said: "After the sold-out show, Tracy asked for the house lights to be turned on and requested all those who helped save his life to share his standing ovation with him.

"It was a very emotional night."

Following the performance, Tracy invited all the hospital employees in the audience backstage to his dressing room.

All proceeds from the show were donated to the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
