Podcaster, writer and actor/filmmaker for the 90’s comedy classic Clerks… Kevin Smith does it all. Now, add survivor to that list! The owner of Jay & Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, which serves as home to AMC’s hit TV Series Comic Book Men, managed to survive a massive heart last night. Kevin took to social media and shared his frightening brush with death.
After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack. The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka “the Widow-Maker”). If I hadn’t canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would’ve died tonight. But for now, I’m still above ground! pic.twitter.com/M5gSnW9E5h
