The comedian was saved by one trusty doctor.

Kevin Smith, the actor/comedian/director most known for Clerks and Jay and Silent Bob, has taken to Twitter to publicly reveal that he endured a near-fatal heart attack yesterday. At the time, Smith was in Glendale, Ca. filming his forthcoming stand-up special Kevin Smith Live! at the Alex Theatre, which is slated to premiere sometime in the near future. The special required two tapings on two separate days; however, Smith began to feel ill shortly after the first taping wrapped up.

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”).”
