NEW YORK, Oct. 18 (UPI) -- Actor and comedian Tracy Morgan returned to Saturday Night Live this weekend for the first time since he was seriously injured when a Walmart truck hit his limo in 2014.

"I'm back. It feels so good to be here," the 46-year-old funnyman said in his warm and humble monologue as guest host.

"As most of you know, I was in a terrible car accident a year ago. It was awful, but it also showed me how much love and support I have in this world. So, a couple of months ago, I called [SNL chief] Lorne Michaels, he's my Obi Wan Kenobi, and I said, 'Lorne, when I get back on my feet, I want to come home.' And here I am! People are wondering: 'Can he speak?' 'Does he have 100 percent mental capacity?' But the truth is, I never did. I might actually be a few points higher now. But, through it all, I am so lucky I had my comedy family. When this happened, I knew they would all be there to support me."

Morgan and his former 30 Rock co-stars -- Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, Jane Krakowski and Jack McBrayer -- reunited for a sketch, while another segment featured Morgan reviving his SNL character Brian Fellow, the undereducated host of Safari Planet.

In addition, the comedian appeared in sketches about a dangerous-seeming bar patron who just wants to tango; Jackie Chan fans trying to find out where the action-hero is; and an episode of the game show Family Feud that goes awry.

Morgan was an SNL cast member from 1996 to 2003.
