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.”

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
