A well-known comedian was hospitalized after having a heart attack just before he was set to take the stage, reports TMZ.com.
Gallagher, known for smashing watermelons during his act, suffered the heart attack just before a scheduled show in Texas, the piece adds. The heart attack was described as a "mild to serious" episode by his manager.
The 65-year-old comedian was expected to remain in the hospital for a few days.
Gallagher collapsed on stage in Minnesota about a year ago with what was then described as a mild heart attack.
