In the same vein of his surprise appearance at the Emmys in September, Tracy wasted no time bringing out the quips, and he even managed to get some pretty good guffaws out of the audience by poking fun at the rumors surrounding his recovery.
"People were wondering,'Can he speak? Does he have 100 percent mental capacity?' But the truth is, I never did," Tracy said. "I might actually be a few points higher now."
Those signature wisecracks were then followed by a "prothetic" 30 Rock skit that hilariously referenced a near-death incident experienced by the comedian's onscreen character Tracy Jordan that pretty much reminded us why 30 Rock, well, rocked.
Whew, it takes a true comedic genius to pull jokes from such a serious incident. Kudos to Tracy for daring to go there. He's certainly been missed!
