NEW YORK (AP) — "Saturday Night Live" alum Colin Quinn is exercising his wit days after a heart attack interrupted his busy touring schedule.
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.
Thanks for all the kind words and support. Starting a list of those who didn't "check in" yet. Guarantee they'll regret the day they didn't wish me well on the road to recovery.— Colin Quinn (@iamcolinquinn) February 19, 2018
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."
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!"
My heart broke onValentines Day. Literally. I am currently doing well although if I dropped dead you would see a funeral like al Capone!— Colin Quinn (@iamcolinquinn) February 14, 2018
I guess this heart attack has really made me reflect. You know, we aren’t guaranteed tomorrow, or u really think about it.— Colin Quinn (@iamcolinquinn) February 14, 2018
He says the attack made him reflect, realizing "we aren't guaranteed tomorrow."
A heart attack is a serious thing. When it happens to a celeb let's double the importance. I understand some people wish me dead, it's human. I feel that way about plenty of people myself. But there's ways of doing things. "Keep up appearances" as they say.— Colin Quinn (@iamcolinquinn) February 19, 2018
