Tracy Morgan is giving back in a big way— proving that what goes around sure does come back around.
The comedian brought his “Picking up the Pieces” comedy tour to the State Theatre in New Brunswick, N.J. on Saturday night, and used the show as an opportunity to pay tribute to the men and women who helped save his life following a deadly car accident in 2014.
Coincidentally, the State Theatre where Morgan performed is located less than a mile away from Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, where he was taken following the crash that killed his friend James McNair. He told PEOPLE about the show:
“Last night was one of the most special nights of my life. To be standing on stage with the people that saved my life in the audience was an overwhelming experience. I will never fully be able to thank the doctors, nurses, first responders and everyone else that got me back on that stage enough.”
In a separate interview with Rolling Stone, he added:
“I thought I was going to die for a long time. My thoughts – I was in a very dark place. I was sitting right here, contemplating suicide. I couldn’t walk.”
Morgan donated all of the show’s proceeds to the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
