Sixteen months after his near-fatal accident, comedian Tracy Morgan is launching a stand-up tour, which will include two stops on Long Island.

The comedian will bring his "Picking Up the Pieces" tour to the Paramount in Huntington on March 12. Tickets ($50-$70) go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

Morgan will also appear at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on May 28. Tickets ($95-$150) for that show go on sale Oct. 27. The tour starts Feb. 5 in Hammond, Indiana.

The tour announcement comes on the heels of Morgan's "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig.

"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 in a statement about returning to touring. "People can expect more of what I did before. It's me, funny + truth = Tracy Morgan. I can't wait to get back to ya'll; city to city, state to state, watch me operate."

Morgan was in a coma for two weeks after the June 2014 accident, when a truck on the New Jersey Turnpike crashed into the limo van he was riding in. His friend James McNair, also a comedian, was killed.
