Kevin Smith Had a “Widow-Maker” Heart Attack

We almost lost Kevin Smith after he suffered a massive heart between comedy shows. 

According to, Smith was shooting a new standup special, Kevin Smith Live!, at the Alex Theatre in Glendale on Sunday night. After his 6pm show, he was scheduled to shoot again at 9pm. But between shows, he noticed something was wrong.

According to a tweet Smith posted several hours ago, he had a 100% blockage of his LAD artery otherwise known as the “Widow-Maker.” The doctor told him that had he not canceled his second show, he would have died. 

No word on how Smith is currently doing, but if he’s well enough to tweet, my guess is that he’s going to recover.
