John Witherspoon, the famed comedian, apparently suffered a stroke while on stage during an improv performance. The video taken by a member of the audience showed Witherspoon telling the fellow comedians on stage that something was wrong while yelling out to the audience not to worry and that he’d be back on stage. The audience member that captured the video captioned it, “Went to see John Witherspoon at KC Improv & he seemed to possibly be having a stroke. He was escorted off stage.”
There has been no official word on Witherspoon’s condition, but stay tuned for any updates.
