Comedian Tracy Morgan: Exclusive Interview One Year After Accident

tracy-morgan-crashJune 7th was the one-year anniversary of the horrific motor vehicle accident that gave comedian Tracy Morgan broken bones and a serious brain injury and also claimed the life of Morgan’s close friend, James “Jimmy Mac” McNair. Matt Lauer Shot_3-10863spoke with Morgan in a two-part exclusive interview on the Today show and on the set of Saturday Night Live (part 1 with video, part 2 with video).

Morgan, who at times was tearful, said, “I love comedy, and I wonder how I’m going to be funny again.”

    Can we invite him to join our TBI Survivors and Caregivers FB group?


    • Carole, I am sure we could, but I think it is impossible to get a hold of him. I’m guessing he is insulated with lawyers and agents – just like most celebs.

      I’d love for him to do an interview on my blog and a live interview for my radio show, “Another Fork in the Road. ” If anyone knows how to contact him, please let me know.

        I wish there was a way to get in contact with him, because I believe he is the voice that we need to bring awareness to TBI! I know he worries that he won’t get his funny back, but maybe this happen, because God(or whatever your higher power may be called) wanted him to speak out on about an issue that is now affecting him.


      • Michell, I hear you. I think he needs more time. I recently learned that he only loved about 5 miles from me when I lived in that area of NJ. Not that that would have done any good. There are several people wit BI that are voices. bod Woodruff, Gabby Giffords, George Visger, and Jill Bolte-Taylor to name a few. You can find articles, book reviews, or interviews for each of them on my blog.

        Thanks so much for your comments.

No memory of the day that changed my life

My name is Michelle Munt and this is my story about surviving a brain injury and what I continue to learn about it. This is for other survivors and their loved ones, but also to raise awareness of what can happen to those in an accident. This invisible injury too often goes undiagnosed and it can be difficult to find information about it. I will talk about things that have helped me as I continue to recover and invite others to see if it works for them too.

Everything and nothing. GM1123 😊
