It’s been 15 months since the fatal limo bus crash that put Tracy Morgan in the hospital and his beautiful bulging stomach into temporary retirement, and I guess he’s feeling a whole hell of a lot better, because Tracy made an appearance at the Primetime Emmy Awards last night and served up some Tracy Jordan realness. I can almost hear Liz Lemon sighing before telling Kenneth: “Keep an eye on him, and make sure his pants aren’t next.”
Tracy was there to present the Outstanding Drama Series award (which went to Game of Thrones), and for the most part he kept it serious. The audience gave him a standing ovation when he walked out on stage in a fancy-ass suit (Thanks, Walmart!), and he thanked everyone for their “love, prayers and positive thoughts.” He also kept his gut tucked away, because flashing your swollen bowling ball is really more of a Daytime Emmys move. Eventually he proved Tracy is still Tracy by making a pregnancy joke:
“When I finally regained consciousness, I was ecstatic to learn I wasn’t the one who messed up. Only recently I’ve started to feel like myself again, which means a whole lotta young women gonna get pregnant at the after party.”
Here’s the full video of his speech. You know Grizz and Dot Com totally felt cheated that they didn’t get a shout-out.
And in 9 months, the US population will almost double in size. Sure, 98% of it will be thanks to the Duggars and their constant baby-making, but I’m sure a couple of those new babies will be the result of Tracy’s recuperated sperms.
Speaking of babies, here’s Tracy, Tracy’s pregnant lady-looking gut, Tracy’s “new wife” Megan Wollover, and their 2-year-old daugher Maven.
