Tracy Morgan fans, rejoice!

Just three days after his triumphant return to Saturday Night Live for the first time since a tragic car accident put him in a coma last year, the comedian has announced he will be going on a comedy tour in 2016.

The multi-city stand-up gig will hit six Caesars Entertainment properties across the country starting Feb. 5 at the Horseshoe Hammond Casino near Chicago.

“It’s just like falling off a bike and getting back on, that’s all: you don’t forget where the pedals are,” Morgan, 46, said of getting back to touring in a press release for the tour.

As for what to expect, Morgan promised to deliver “more of what I did before.”

“It’s me: funny + truth = Tracy Morgan. I can’t wait to get back to y’all; city to city, state to state, watch me operate.”

On Oct. 12, Morgan made his first return to stand-up after nearly a year-and-a-half hiatus due to the accident.

Earlier this month, he was also spotted filming his first role since the car crash in the upcoming comedy Fist Fight, which also stars Charlie Day and Ice Cube.

Tickets for Morgan’s 2016 tour will go on sale to the public on Oct. 30 and can be purchased at TicketMaster.com.
