Comedian Tracy Morgan, who nearly died in 2014 in a traffic collision, has a show scheduled for May at Mystic Lake Casino.
“Tracy Morgan: Picking Up the Pieces” will take the stage May 27, the casino announced Monday. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday and are priced at $39 and $49. Details at 952-496-6563 and mysticlake.com.
Morgan and others were in a limo van in June 2014, when it was hit by a Wal-Mart truck. The crash killed comedian James McNair and seriously injured Morgan and others.
Truck driver Kevin Roper faces charges of aggravated manslaughter, vehicular homicide and aggravated assault. Federal investigators said Roper hadn’t slept for 28 hours before the crash. His lawyer disputes that allegation.
Morgan, 47, starred on seven seasons of television’s “30 Rock” starting in 2006. He joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live” in 1996, appearing for seven seasons.
He returned to “SNL” as a host in October, his first appearance on the show since the crash left him in a coma for two weeks.
