Kevin Smith was performing the first of two shows Sunday night when he suffered a heart attack. He cancelled the second show to go to the hospital. It was a great thing he did so.

Smith, 47, tweeted out his story. The doctor informed him as to the extent of his condition. He was told he had 100% blockage of his left anterior descending artery. This is commonly known as the “widow maker” because of the limited survival rate.

The creator of the ‘Clerks’ movies, “Mall Rats” as well as the ‘Jay and Silent Bob’ characters, did make it, but he likely wouldn’t have had he tried to perform the second show.
