During an interview with Complex magazine, the 47-year-old talked about the harrowing car accident last June that left him in a coma for eight days and killed his friend James McNair.

“You’re never going to be normal after you go through something like that,” he continued. “You don’t die for a few weeks and then come back to normal, trust me. Something’s going to be missing, something’s going to be gained — you just got to live your life after that.”

Morgan married his longtime girlfriend and returned to the stage to host “Saturday Night Live” this fall. He told Complex he is looking forward to the future. (RELATED: Tracy Morgan Weds Longtime Girlfriend)
