The comedian suffered serious injuries in a horrific traffic accident in New Jersey last year (14), and he has spent months recovering and undergoing physiotherapy.

He suffered a nasty head injury as well as a broken leg and ribs, and spent eight days in a coma following the devastating crash, which killed fellow comedian James 'Jimmy MACk' MCNair.

Tracy is now starting to get his career back on track, and he proved he is on form by performing two shows in New York City on Monday night.

The 30 Rock star tweeted a picture of himself performing at New York City club Comedy Cellar and expressed his pride in a caption that read, "My first time on stage in 16 months at the #ComedyCellar! Picking up the pieces!"

Tracy, who was a surprise addition to the bill at the Comedy Cellar venue, also performed a second set at The Stand Restaurant & Comedy Club in Manhattan.

Fellow funnyman Judah Friedlander, who also performed at the Comedy Cellar on Monday, tweeted a picture of himself posing with Tracy.

"T Money is back!!!!!!!! So great to see @RealTracyMorgan back on stage tonight @NYCComedyCellar (sic)," he wrote.

Tracy's comeback is set to continue this week (beg12Oct15) with an upcoming appearance on U.S. sketch show Saturday Night Live over the weekend (17-18Oct15).

He rose to fame as a regular castmember on the hit show from 1996 until 2003, and he previously returned to present the programme in 2009.
