While it’s good to see the funnyman back on his feet, over the weekend he proved he’s not forgetting everyone who helped him along the way.
Over the weekend, the SNL alum performed for the doctors, first responders, and nurses at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital that helped him after his accident.
Tracy opened up to People about the performance, saying:
“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. “
The actor went on to say:
“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.”
A source close to Tracy opened up about the show, saying:
“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.”
Of course, since Morgan is such a giving and gracious person, he invited all the hospital employees who showed up to come backstage to his dressing room for as many pictures and hugs as they could manage.
We think it’s wonderful to see the comedian giving back and not forgetting who helped him through his harrowing experience.
We love you, Tracy!
