This marks his third heart attack, he suffered a minor heart attack during a performance in Minnesota last March and another just weeks ago.

The heart attack comes four days after being released from the hospital following a more serious heart attack.

Last week, the comedian reportedly was about to take the stage at Hat Tricks club Wednesday in Lewisville but collapsed 20 minutes before the show was slated to start at 9 p.m.

According to AP, CPR was performed on him before paramedics arrived and the comedian was rushed to a local hospital.
