After suffering a brain injury in a horrifying car crash in June 2014, comedian Tracy Morgan is ready to keep his comeback going. Morgan announced an upcoming stand-up comedy tour, Picking Up the Pieces, on Twitter Tuesday, and shared the specifics on his website. So far, 34 shows have been announced, running from Feb. 5 to May 26, 2016.
The tour will bring Morgan around the country, starting in Indiana and ending in New York, with stops in far-flung states along the way. It’ll be a lot of travel for Morgan, who’s clearly ready to put the tragic accident behind him. Tickets for the March 23 Lakesville, Pennsylvania, show are already on sale, but most won’t gone on sale until Oct. 23 and later.
Morgan recently dipped his toes into the comedy waters by hosting Saturday Night Live on Oct. 17. In his opening monologue, he made light of the public’s concerns about whether he’d ever be able to speak again by acting as if his speech hadn’t fully recovered. He went on to more seriously discuss the love and support he’s been shown throughout his recovery, but kept the jokes coming with the help of his former 30 Rock stars Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, Jane Krakowski, and Jack McBrayer. Morgan definitely proved that his sense of humor is fully intact, if it ever even took a hit.
As Morgan put it in his tweet, he plans to “bring the funny” on tour and encouraged fans to check it out.

In addition to his tour, Morgan also plans to move forward with an FXX series that has been in the works since before the crash occurred. Clearly Morgan is back in business, which is great to see, especially when it was once doubtful whether he’d survive the accident at all.
