UPDATE: Gallagher is awake and telling jokes after doctors slowly woke him on Sunday morning, reports the AP. His promotional manager, Christine Scherrer, says the comedian is breathing on his own, moving around and talking to family members.
Watermelon-smashing comedian Gallagher is still in a medically induced coma after suffering a heart attack last week in Texas.
Doctors had planned to wake the 65-year-old comedian on Saturday, but he was trying to wake on his own, says the comedian’s promotional manager, Christine Scherrer. She says the doctors want him to wake slowly, but they may try Sunday.
Scherrer says the comedian had two stents replaced after collapsing Wednesday before a performance at a bar in Lewisville, a Dallas suburb.
