Watch the Jay and Silent Bob creator describe the moment he had a "massive heart attack" after performing a stand-up show last year.
This week, Kevin Smith visited The Chris Moyles Show to talk about his new film, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which is set for release this Friday (29 November).
The writer, filmmaker, comedian, author and podcaster is best known for creating iconic films such as Clerks, Mallrats and Dogma as well as the Jay and Silent Bob series.
But he's recently hit the headlines after suffering a huge heart attack, and revealing his subsequent dramatic weight loss.
Watch our video above to see him describe the moment he almost died in February 2018, after suffering a heart attack following a stand-up performance in California.
See the incredible tweet Kevin Smith sent from his hospital bed last year:
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— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) February 26, 2018
Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is in UK cinemas from 29 November 2020.
