Kevin Smith tweeted out good news from a hospital bed Sunday evening - he survived a "massive heart attack" which occurred earlier in the evening during filming of a new stand-up special in Glendale, California.
After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack. The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka “the Widow-Maker”). If I hadn’t canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would’ve died tonight. But for now, I’m still above ground! pic.twitter.com/M5gSnW9E5h— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) February 26, 2018
Smith was scheduled for two shows at Glendale's Alex Theater - the heart attack reportedly occured following the 6 p.m. Pacific Time event.
