NEW YORK (AP) – Tracy Morgan has returned to a familiar stage, hosting “Saturday Night Live” for the first time since a vehicle crash that left him in a coma.

The comic said in his opening monologue that people have been wondering if he has full mental capacity after his June 2014 crash on the New Jersey Turnpike. He jokes that he never did and his IQ might even be a few points higher now.

He was joined in one sketch by “30 Rock” co-stars Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Jane Krakowski and Jack McBrayer. Fey broke character to inject a serious note: “We’re so happy you’re OK. We’re even happier you’re ready to make people laugh again.”

Morgan also brought back two of his familiar characters – Astronaut Jones and animal expert Brian Fellow. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
