Gallagher Heart Attack

Gallagher has been sidelined, after being hospitalized in Texas after suffering a heart attack moments before he was to go onstage at a club.

The 68-year-old was expected to perform March 14-15 at Coach Joe’s Hat Tricks in Lewisville but began to experience intense chest pains while preparing to go onstage, according to TMZ.

The club owner called 911 and paramedics arrived to transport the watermelon-smashing comedian to a nearby hospital.

Gallagher collapsed on stage in Minnesota last year after suffering a “minor heart attack”; at press time, he was expected to be under observation at the hospital for a “couple of days.”
