George Lopez has not started his New Year well.

Like TMZ reports that the comedian was performing a first show on New Years Eve at the Muckleshoot Casino Resort in Washington when he cut his set short after apparently falling ill.

An eyewitness to the show told the outlet that about half an hour after the show started, Lopez could be seen sweating and asked someone to bring him water.

“You could tell something was wrong, but it wasn’t clear what was wrong,” said Sabrina Alvarez, who was in the audience for the 4 p.m. show, adding that Lopez had apologized to the audience and left the stage.

According to TMZ, an ambulance was seen arriving at the scene, but it is not known whether Lopez was taken to hospital.

Shortly after Lopez left the stage, the casino announced that the comedian’s 8 p.m. show that night had been canceled.

Lopez has yet to discuss his state of health on social media.
