Following his emotional Today interview from this morning, Matt Lauer continued his chat with Tracy Morgan for NBC Nightly News. This time, the locale would be the familiar confines of studio 8H, the home of Saturday Night Live. This was the first time Morgan had returned to the set since his accident, having missed the #SNL40 celebration earlier this season despite a touching tribute during the broadcast.
Morgan echoed much of the same sentiment from his earlier interview and discussed his goals regarding his career and performing for people once again:
“I love comedy, and I wonder how I’m going to be funny again, remembering my identity,” said the former 30 Rock star. “What do I do? And the fans let me know, ‘We can’t wait for you to come back. We can’t wait for you to come back,’ and I can’t wait to make them laugh again.”
Obviously this is another tough-to-watch interview, but it’s great to know he’s recovering and he’s much better off than previous reports claimed. Hopefully it continues and he can get back to the laughter.
