Kevin Smith Tweets About 'Massive Heart Attack' and Treatment

Kevin Smith Tweets About 'Massive Heart Attack' and Treatment”

Kevin Smith has announced on Twitter that he survived a "massive" heart attack, following a comedy show on Sunday night.

The doctor told him that he had 100% blockage of his LAD artery (some call it the Widow-Maker).

In the post, Smith said he felt nauseous after the first show and threw up before beginning to sweat profusely and getting a heavy feeling in his chest.

He tweeted: "If I hadn't canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would've died tonight". But he did go and as a result, he was able to tell his fans: "I'm still above ground".

Smith had been performing one of his popular stand-up shows in Glendale, California, and suffered the heart attack after coming off stage.

Smith, known for directing films such as Clerks and Mallrats, among others, now hosts and produces AMC's Comic Book Men, a number of podcasts and recently finished directing an episode of The Flash for The CW.

"Can you please pray with me people!?" he added. "Praying for you. I will continue to". You inspired me with Clerks when I was a senior HS.

"Holy s--", "The Talking Dead" host Chris Hardwick tweeted.
