The debate over an artist’s responsibility to stop their show amid an emergency in the crowd had landed at George Lopez‘s feet … although this one may not be cut and dried.
The comedian was performing Friday at the Majestic Theater in San Antonio, when at one point during his set … a man started falling into distress in the upper balcony area, to the point that the house lights were turned on.
Check out this video obtained by TMZ … it shows what we’re told were a few minutes after this gentleman, who’s described as mid-aged, fell unconscious with people around him — including what appears to be folks in his own party — attending to him.
Eventually, people flagged down event staff … and he was carried out and taken to an ambulance. San Antonio Fire confirms he regained consciousness and was stable at the hospital.
In the meantime … you can see and hear George down at the stage level continuing on with his set, seemingly working all the commotion into his actual jokes — which actually got some laughs. Of course, some in the crowd felt as if he should’ve done a hard pause — even more, felt it was inappropriate for him to joke about whatever was going on at all.
