Cognito was breathing heavily while sitting on a stool and went quiet for five minutes, BBC News reported.

Since the performer had mentioned a stroke moments earlier, the stall in the show “didn’t seem unusual” as he had a “flamboyant character on stage,” Mold told CNN.

After a few minutes, fellow comedians in the crowd realized Cognito might need medical attention, so an ambulance was called and a paramedic who was at the venue began CPR. Other attendees were ushered out.

Andrew Bird, who runs the Lone Wolf Comedy Club, revealed to BBC News that Cognito was not feeling well before he went onstage, but he wanted to perform anyway. “He was like his old self. His voice was loud,” he recalled. “I was thinking, ‘He’s having such a good gig.’”
