George Lopez is certainly one of the most established and recognizable stand-up comedians of all time. No matter what, Lopez will carry with his shows but it seems even he has his limits.
According to TMZ, George Lopez had to stop his comedy set during New Year’s Eve as he suddenly got very sick in the middle of his set. As seen in the clip, things were clearly amiss.
The comedian was performing at the Muckleshoot Casino Resort in Auburn, Washington at around 4 PM when he started to have problems. As revealed by an eyewitness named Sabrina Alvarez, George was somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes into his set when he started sweating and asking for water.
Initially, no one gave him water but then a person in the front row obliged him. Sabrina Alvarez even said that it was evident something was wrong but it wasn’t clear what exactly was.
“You could tell something was wrong, but it was not clear what was wrong.”
George Lopez apologized to the audience and stopped the show before he walked off stage. An ambulance was also called to the venue, but it is not known whether Lopez was taken to the hospital. The Casino then announced the 8 PM show was cancelled and rescheduled for March 18th. We will keep you updated on this ongoing story.
