The segment will cover everything from airport profiling and terrorism to meeting President Obama. "The special is going to be all the elements: fire, water, earth, air, the comedy bender, the avatar of comedy experience," the 41-year-old comic said in a statement.

Before that, Morgan spent eight years on Saturday Night Live where he was best known for characters like Brian Fellow and his impersonations of Star Jones and Mike Tyson.
