The comedian was saved by one trusty doctor.
The Dogma director ultimately cancelled his second performance, and admitted himself into urgent care at a nearby hospital. It was this decision that ultimately saved Smith’s life, as a doctor discovered some potentially-fatal artery blockages in his heart.
Smith posted a selfie in his hospital garb with some medical tubing encircling his head and chest post-operation. He appears particularly vital in the photo, and will hopefully make a speedy recovery. In the tweet, the comedian reveals some details about his exact condition, noting how “The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka “the Widow-Maker”).”
