Comedian George Lopez fell ill in the middle of his New Year’s Eve Show and abruptly canceled the event.

Lopez, 60, was performing at Muckleshoot Casino Resort in Auburn, Washington. In a brief video clip shared on social media, Lopez seemed distressed and is heard saying sorry. A witness named Sabrina Alvarez said that partway through his set, Lopez began visibly sweating and asking for water, and eventually apologized before stopping the show.

An ambulance was seen arriving at the venue, but it is unclear whether or not Lopez went to the hospital.

Lopez was slated for another show that night at 8 p.m., but he did not return and the casino announced later that evening that the show would be rescheduled to March 18.

It remains to be seen what the nature of Lopez’s illness was, but this cancellation comes after a slew of premature cancellations of New Year’s Eve performances primarily in New York due to concern over the recent surge in positive COVID-19 cases.
