However, things just didn't work out, and now is

Since the tragedy, the Saturday Night Live alum has had quite a comeback as he returned to his old NBC stomping grounds to host the NBC sketch show, got back to stand up, and even made a surprise appearance at the Emmys!
Even though Tracy doesn't like talking about the accident, he did open up a bit when he stopped by Howard Stern on Tuesday, all about about the dirtier parts of recovery — like masturbation!
The 30 Rock star apparently cleaned his pipe A LOT at the hospital. He explained:
We love seeing celebs band together to talk about a serious cause.
In a video for the upcoming NBC event, which helps raise funds to fight kids' poverty, a slew of A-listers (literally) finish each other's sentences all while promoting a good cause.
Other stars who pop up include Chloë Grace Moretz, Kristen Bell, Liam Neeson, Anna Kendrick,Lena Dunham, Vince Vaughn, Tracy Morgan, and Will Ferrell — while A-listers like Emma Thompson, Celine Dion, and Julianne Moore barely say a word!
And no charity video would be complete without Bono stopping by at the end to give a serious look! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the funny promo (below) and catch the second annual Red Nose Day special airing Thursday at 9 p.m. on NBC!
Tracy Morgan really loved Prince!
In an essay for Billboard Magazine, Trace recalled his favorite and most hilarious memories of the late icon. From "going gay" for the singer to bonding over the legend's music with his late dad, Morgan's message covered A LOT of feelings!
For those who don't know, Morgan spent some quality time with the 57-year-old throughout the years. The first time was when T.M. attended a wild party at the Prince's El Lay area home.
Speaking on the fun memory, the poppa recalled:
"About seven years ago, I went to a party at Prince's house in Los Angeles. We had to take a bus there – Jennifer Lopez, everybody was on this bus — and Prince performed with his band in the living room. The liquor was flowing and everybody was getting nice. At the end of the night, me and my boy Bradley were drunk. We had these two girls on the sofa and we were talking, joking, laughing. Prince and his wife came downstairs and they had on purple pajamas. He said, "Tracy, get the f– out!" As I walked out the door, I grabbed him by the back of the neck and I pulled him close to me. I noticed that mole on his face — he was so pretty, I turned gay for about five seconds — and I said, "My father loved 'When Doves Cry.' " And he said, "Yeah, yeah. Just get the f– out.'"
Ha! This anecdote is everything! We don't doubt a lot of people would have "turned gay" for the musician!
The funny man went on to add:
"Prince's music taught me how to suck titties! He taught me how to be gentle. Because of him, I once sucked a titty for an hour. At the end, it looked like a tater tot."
Oh man… there's so much too dissect in that comment. We're glad the Minnesota native was such a source of inspiration for Tracy!

Entertainers are banding together to push some backward governments into the 21st century!
This time, the state is Mississippi, and the law is the Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act — yet another law designed to legalize and INCREASE discrimination against gays.
The Saturday Night Live alum was scheduled to perform in Tunica as part of his Picking Up The Pieces tour but abruptly cancelled on Tuesday, explaining in a press release:
This is much more powerful than we ever could have imagined.
Tracy stopped by SuperSoul Sunday on OWN over the weekend to talk about his eight-day coma, and ended up revealing he actually saw his father in heaven while he was unconscious!
Not only would that be enough to affect anyone, but he even said that his dad was his best friend, so seeing him 17 years after his death was a lot to deal with.
We simply have no words, but we're happy to see Tracy recuperating so strongly.

Want a play-by-play on the birth of Seth Meyers' baby? Yes?
Well that's good, because the late night host dedicated a nice portion of his Tuesday show to telling his audience about what EXACTLY went down when his son with wife Alexi came two weeks early! Awww!
The Saturday Night Live alum dished about how he and his pregnant wife jumped into the car of a shocked Uber driver (who thankfully kept his cool), and that Mrs. Meyers then proceeded to scream out the window while going through contractions.
