The funnyman was performing his signature Sledge-O-Matic routine, which involves smashing a large mallet into various objects, when he fell backwards onto the stage at the Rochester, Minnesota venue.

The star, real name Leo Gallagher, Jr., was shaking and clutching his chest, according to TMZ.com.

The website reports that doctors in the audience rushed onstage to look after Gallagher until the ambulance arrived.
