Tracy Morgan is looking forward to returning to the stage once he's ready.
On Monday, the comedian sat down for his first interview since he was critically injured in a deadly highway crash in June 2014.

The Saturday Night Live alum chatted with Matt Lauer on NBC Nightly News and explained that he's aiming to fully recover before he performs in front of audiences — especially trying to improve his memory and balance.
Though performing seems like the biggest motivator for the 46-year-old's rehabilitation, he admits that he's not sure he'll be "funny" again, saying:
"I love comedy. I wonder how I'm going to be funny again. How I'm going to get to remembering my identity. What do I do? The fans let me know we can't wait for you to come back. They can't wait for me to come back. I can't wait to make them laugh again."
We're so happy the comedian is on the road to recovery, and we can't wait to see him return to the stage!
