In June 2014, Tracy Morgan was involved in a devastating highway accident that left him seriously injured and killed his friend, comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair. Over a year later, the veteran comedian is crediting God for coming out of his coma.

In an interview with Complex magazine, the Saturday Night Live and former 30 Rock funnyman said about the normality of his life, "you're never going to be normal after you go through something like that. 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. But after surviving something like that, I'm probably never going to feel normal."

Morgan remarked that during his coma, he had a spiritual encounter and spoke to God: "I went to the other side. This is not something I'm making up. Do you know what God said to me? He said, 'Your room ain't ready. I still got something for you to do.' And here I am, doing an interview with you."

In his first interview following last year's accident, Morgan, who is unable to remember the accident, told Today's Matt Lauer in June, "I can't believe I'm here. I can't believe I'm in front of you."

The comedian said of his next project, "I just wrapped up a movie with Ice Cube and Charlie Day. It's called Fist Fight. I don't know when it's going to come out," but wouldn't share much more on the project than it being about "two high school teachers."

As for what's to come in the future, Morgan told the magazine of his plans, "I try not to do that. Just living my life, man. When the sun's up, I try to get it on and poppin'. When the sun is up, I try to make it happen. That's what I'm doing, whatever it is! I'm going to do it until I'm satisfied."
