Heather McDonald is sharing video footage of her fainting spell that took place on stage over the weekend in Tempe, Arizona.

The comedian, 51, fell after taking the stage for a standup set on Saturday night and later was admitted to the hospital with a skull fracture.

“When you faint on stage after you brag about being vaccinated,” McDonald wrote over a video in which she is seen mentioning how she is “double vaxxed” and has the “booster [and the] flu shot,” before going on to say she even has her shingles vaccine.

“I fainted on stage and fractured my skull in front of a sold out show at the @tempeimprov What do you think caused it? #karma #Jesus #comedy #juicyscoop #standup #covid.”
