"After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack," the "Clerks" director, writer and actor tweeted early Monday. "The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka 'the Widow-Maker'). If I hadn’t canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would’ve died tonight.
