Kevin Smith is recuperating after suffering a ā€œmassive heart attackā€ on Sunday. The writer, director, and actor informed fans of his condition on Twitter early Monday morning, when he posted a photo of himself seemingly on the mend.

Apparently, Smith was supposed to tape a couple of stand-up shows at Glendaleā€™s Alex Theater, but canceled the second one after falling ill. The Comic Book Men host tweeted that if he ā€œhadnā€™t canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I wouldā€™ve died tonight.ā€

Earlier today, Smith posted a more detailed account of his ordeal to Facebook, expressing relief as well as gratitude for his friends who called the ambulance.
