Tracy Morgan is back at home on Saturday Night Live.

The comedian, 46, returns to the show this week for the first time since being injured in a tragic car accident that put him in a coma last year.

In his promos for the episode, Morgan has fun at the expense of castmate Bobby Moynihan by pretending the accident has affected his memory. Moynihan, 38, looks concerned when Morgan pretends not to remember that he once was an SNL regular.

“Did I used to work here? I can’t remember anymore,” Morgan says, before admitting he was just messing with Moynihan.

Later, when Moynihan says Morgan is “home,” the comedian disagrees – his home is much nicer.

“This isn’t my home. My home is way bigger than this. Elevator. A bowling alley and everything,” he boasts.

But how does Morgan really show off that he’s feeling like his old self?

“I’m going to get everyone in this building pregnant,” he says. Morgan returned to the stage at the Emmys last month, receiving a standing ovation and giving an emotional speech thanking his family and doctors for support.

On Monday, he prepared for SNL by performing stand-up comedy for the first time since the accident. Morgan tweeted a photo of himself at New York’s Comedy Cellar.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays (11:30 p.m. ET) on NBC.
