It has now been nearly a year since the highway crash that nearly ended Tracy Morgan’s life. The comedian made his first televised interview on The Today Show, and spoke on how he’s been able to cope with the loss of his friend Jimmy Mack who was also in the crash, as well as his healing process. Will he get back to comedy? Tracy says:

“I love comedy. I’ll never stop loving her. I love comedy and I can’t wait to get back to her. But right now my goal is just to heal and get better. Because I’m not 100 percent yet. I’m not. And when I’m there, you’ll know it. I’ll get back to making you laugh. I promise you.”
