Comedian Tracy Morgan made an iconic return to the Emmys stage last night, and drew laughs from the audience, who stood and applauded his triumphant return. The “30 Rock” star recalled waking up from a coma after he suffered a brain injury.

“I was ecstatic to learn I wasn’t the one who messed up,” Morgan joked.

Morgan handed out the award for Best Drama Series to “Game of Thrones.”
