Sitting down with Matt Lauer and his attorney Benedict Morelli, the comedian looked like he did before the accident last June. Morgan explained his health has improved, but he still has occasional "bad days" where he gets headaches and nosebleeds.

Though he has made a visible physical recovery, his emotional battle has proven difficult — his friend and fellow comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair was killed in the accident.

The 30 Rock alum got choked up when speaking about Jimmy Mack, explaining

The 46-year-old was seen walking with the assistance of a cane, which is no different from his last public appearance in February, where he used the helper while entering a rehab facility.

Ever since his car accident last June — where a Walmart truck driver hit his limo, killing friend James McNair and leaving him with brain and limb injuries — the 30 Rock star has been slowly but surely making improvements with his recovery.

As we reported last month, the conglomerate paid $10 million dollars to McNair's children, Jamel and Danita.

Morgan has sued the company for "careless and negligent ownership and operation of its motor vehicle." In response, the retail corporation countersued claiming he wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

Even with his condition, the funnyman is determined to get back into comedy.

We can't wait for the day when Tracy will make us laugh again.
