Tracy Morgan hit the stage over the holiday weekend for his first stand-up comedy routine since his tragic June 2014 car accident.

Morgan appeared at the Comedy Cellar in New York City and based on photos hitting social media, the 46-year-old appeared to be completely back in his zone. The actor’s performance also comes just one week before his return to the SNL stage on October 17.

“My first time on stage in 16 months at the #ComedyCellar!” Morgan tweeted. “Picking up the pieces!”

Morgan, who suffered several broken bones in the accident that killed fellow comedian, James McNair, shocked fans at the 2015 Emmy Awards when he took the stage to present the final award of the night. “I miss you guys so much,” he said before announcing the winner for Outstanding Drama Series.

Morgan continued, “Last year Jimmy Kimmel stood on the stage and said ‘we will see you back here next year Tracy Morgan.’ Well, Jimmy, thanks to my amazing doctors, the support of my family, my beautiful new wife, I’m here. Standing on my own two feet. And God bless all of you, for your love, your prayers your positive thoughts over the past 15 months.”

A source at ABC also suggested that a “new deal will significantly increase her compensation and cautioned that Anderson and Ellis Ross’ roles aren’t equal given that he has been attached to Black-ish from the start and is an executive producer.”

Ross has yet to comment on the report, but if she does take a step back, this means the show will be more male dominated; after all, Zoe, played by Yara Shahidi, is now in college and has her own spinoff show, Grownish.
