Gallagher is “up to his same ol’ antics” but “still needs time,” manager says as comedian leaves hospital
Gallagher is out of the hospital, and will hopefully be making people laugh again soon.
The 65-year old comedian, who suffered a heart attack last Wednesday at a Texas club where he was scheduled to perform, was released from the hospital on Wednesday, the entertainer's promotional manager, Christine Scherrer, confirmed to TheWrap.
According to Scherrer, the comedian — born Leo Gallagher — "is doing great, but still needs time … he is up to his same ol' antics though."
It is not clear how Gallagher's health woes will affect his performance schedule. According to the comedian's official web site, his next scheduled date is on April 4 at the Tampa Improv Comedy Theatre in Tampa, Fla. According to Scherrer, tickets remain available for the upcoming shows, but venues have been told that the dates may shift if necessary.

The comedian's manager, Craig Marquardo, told TheWrap last week that he was meeting with fans at the Hat Tricks club in Lewisville, Texas last Wednesday "when he felt a little tired. So he went in and sat down, and then (club employees) went in and checked on him and he wasn't feeling good, so they called an ambulance."
At one point Gallagher was placed in a medically induced coma, but doctors woke him Sunday morning.
