Tracy Morgan has been through A LOT.
While we're so happy to see Tracy hitting up Saturday Night Live and embarking on a new comedy tour after his devastating car crash, it saddens us to know that he was once in so much emotional pain. In fact, the incident became so harrowing for the comedian admitted to Rolling Stone Magazine that he once considered suicide.
Morgan's struggle was extremely tough due to his mass of physical injuries and fear that he would lose his "funny".
The actor confided:
"I said, 'If my funny ever went away, I'd die.' And I thought I was going to die for a long time. My thoughts – I was in a very dark place. I was sitting right here, contemplating suicide. I couldn't walk."
Wow. How heartbreaking.
Luckily for Tracy, he had the support of his wife Megan Wollover, children, and fans during this trying time. We don't even want to think about where Trace would be today if it weren't for his loving family!
Today, the comedian is looking towards the future and knows there's plenty he still needs to do here on earth:
"I still have shit here to do. It's gonna take more than 18 wheels for me to get out of here. I have to raise my girl, raise my wife, raise my family. Gotta keep my octopus alive. Gotta keep my sharks alive. Those are God's creatures! I'm needed!"
Ha! We love how Tracy's sense of humor was not affected one bit in the crash!
Congrats on your amazing recovery, Tracy!

But when shooting those segments, not everything goes perfectly as Kimmel shared a few of the bloopers from his late night sketches that include Mike Tyson dancing, Tracy Morgan's wackiness, and a little superhero silliness!
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing blooper reel (below) and let us know what your favorite sketch was!
He sure knows how to put on a show!
While many A-listers are attending parties, Jimmy Kimmel takes it upon himself every year to put on the best ABC after-show possible, and this year was no exception!
First, Jimmy teamed up with Tracy Morgan and J.K. Simmons to make Clubber, a much less inspiring sequel to Creed…
Then, he really knocked it out of the park with Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, and Cloris Leachman in Trumped, a parody about the Donald Trump campaign that perfectly follows the plot of The Producers.
Ch-ch-check out Clubber and Trumped (below)!!!
If you don't know, this is the CUTEST late night game as each contestant wins puppies for every correct answer to a trivia question!
Aside from ADORABLE pups though, Tracy chatted it up with the late night host and HIGHlariously dished on how things have changed since he was in a coma — including David Letterman leaving and Donald Trump leading in the polls. LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the BEYOND cute game as well as Morgan rant about changes (below)!
So much for that plan.
The grand jury formally charged the driver with first-degree aggravated manslaughter, second-degree vehicular homicide, and third-degree aggravated assault.
The attorney claimed this would prevent Roper's trial from being a fair and impartial one.
According to legal reps, the truck driver AKA Kevin Roper wants criminal charges thrown out against him despite the severity of the case. For those who don't know, the crash killed Tracy's close friend and fellow comedian, James McNair.
Here's the tricky part: Morgan recently won a MASSIVE amount of money from a lawsuit against Walmart, the company Roper was driving for at the time of the incident. Given that Walmart essentially admitted wrongdoing by giving T.M. the cash, we have a feeling Kevin's request will be denied.
Despite the evidence against him, Roper believes the case should be dropped due to the public nature. Now that the legal matter is all over the news, the former truck driver thinks he won't be able to get a fair trial.
Unsurprisingly enough, this isn't the first time Kevin tried to get the charges dropped.
We'll be sure to keep you updated on the case when he makes his appeal this Tuesday.
