Chevy Chase channeled his inner Clark Griswold at one of the recent “Christmas Vacation” events. The 80-year-old actor was greeting him at the Shea’s Performing Arts Centre in New York this Wednesday when he fell right off stage.
He got up on stage in a wheelchair for a question-answer session after the screening of “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” After that, he got up and started walking towards the crowd. And a moment later, he slipped right off the stage.
He got up eventually after his wife and the moderator helped him. The audience had a good laugh when his smartwatch called him out for falling. He went through the whole event with an icepack to put on his knees. He even stayed back and clicked some photos with his fans.
Sources have told TMZ that the comedian blamed the lights for the mishap and “imply misjudged the edge of the stage when walking out.” According to a report by Outline, he is “doing just fine, apart from a bruised knee.”
The star recently grew concerns among his fans when he was photographed in a wheelchair while he was at an event in Philadelphia for supporting Sylvester Stallone, his close friend. However, his manager mentioned that there was nothing to worry about and that his client was doing okay.
One of his representatives gave a statement, “His health is amazing and his tour, ‘A Live Conversation With Chevy Chase,’ has been selling out across the country. He sometimes uses the chair due to all the airport travel – even at 80 years young. He does not need rest. His tour is extensive during the holiday season.”
Chase last scared everyone with his almost-fatal heart attack back in 2021, when he had to stay in the hospital for almost five weeks. Later in an interview, he joked about it and said the doctors removed his heart.
