A “Saturday Night Live” alum was posting humorous messages on social media to let fans know he’s OK after suffering a heart attack. The AP reports that Colin Quinn’s busy touring schedule was interrupted by the attack, which occurred on Valentine’s Day.
“The 58-year-old Quinn took to Twitter on Monday to let friends and foes alike know he’s ‘starting a list of those who didn’t “check in” yet,’ five days after his Valentine’s Day health emergency,” the AP reports. “The deep-thinking comic thanks the doctors and nurses at his New York hospital, saying they ‘realized they had a precious jewel of comedy in their hands.’”
The report adds: “Quinn announced his heart attack last week, saying on Twitter his heart broke on Valentine’s Day, ‘literally.’ He said he was doing well but if he dropped dead ‘you would see a funeral like Al Capone!’”
