Comedian Tracy Morgan will return to Dover Downs Hotel & Casino this fall, two years after the tragic car wreck he survived after performing at the venue that night.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday, June 7 and can be purchased online at doverdowns.com. Ticket prices range from $35-$65. The show will be held at 9 p.m. on Oct. 14.

Audiences can expect an emotional night at the show.

These days Morgan, a member of the Hollywood Walk of Fame class of 2016, is back on stage making crowds split their sides around the country. However, it looked like his days doing standup might've ended at Dover Downs on June 6, 2014.

Later into the night after his Dover performance, Morgan's limo was struck by a truck driver on the New Jersey Turnpike. The New York native was hospitalized and placed in critical condition. His comedian friend James McNair died from the crash.

An out-pour of celebrities sent prayers and goodwill his way via social media, including Chris Rock.

"Even in critical condition Tracy Morgan is funnier than you," Rock posted on his Whosay page. "Pray for Tracy."

Fellow comedian Shawn Wayans also showed support to his friend.

"I wish him the best and I hope he’s healing now," Wayans told the Dover Post before his own show at Dover Downs on Jan. 23, 2015. "It’s scary, the environment we’re in. People aren’t [always] paying attention to the road." 

In late 2015 Morgan returned to the stage for the first time since his wreck, performing at the Comedy Cellar in New York. Earlier this year he began a new tour that included a stop at The Playhouse on Rodney Square in Wilmington in March.

More than just a standup comedian, Morgan spent seven seasons as a cast member on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” where he created characters such as Brian Fellow and Astronaut Jones.

He followed SNL by starring on the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning NBC comedy “30 Rock” as Tracy Jordan. In 2009, he received his first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for the role.

Among Morgan’s acting and voice credits in film include “The Son of No One,” “Why Stop Now,” “G-Force,” “Rio,” “Rio 2,” “The Longest Yard” and “Head of State.”

His next film, “Fist Fight,” will also star Ice Cube and Charlie Day and is set for release in 2017.

Morgan's triumphant return to the stage has a lot to do with his fighting spirit. He shed light on this before his Dover Downs performance in 2014, when the Dover Post asked how he overcomes adversity.

"I’ve got faith and I know that it’s all going to be alright," Morgan said. "Nothing lasts forever. Tough times don’t last. Tough people do."
