Whoopi's Vegas Act Cut Short After Fan Collapses

5/25/2009 10:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Whoopi GoldbergThe show musn't always go on ... especially when an audience member has a medical emergency towards the end of your set.

Whoopi Goldberg
ended her Las Vegas stand up show early Friday night after a man in the crowd collapsed ... reportedly due to a seizure he experienced during the show.

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, the incident occurred towards the end of Whoopi's set -- and the comedian told the crowd it was best to call it a night so the man could be assisted properly. The man's condition is currently unknown.

FYI -- the whole thing went down in Steve Wynn's Encore hotel -- in the same room where Danny Gans used to perform. And yes -- fans were already suggesting the room was cursed as they streamed out of the theater.

I bet it was a scary situation. I know because my husband has been having seizures of a year now and they doctors still don't know what is causing them. He is on medicine but sometimes it doesn't work. Today we were shopping and he had one again. I had to give him extra medicine til he finally slowed down the shaking. We were at the check out when he started. I have gotten use to it but some people get scared. I tell them they need to be calm because he needs to be calm. Usually that works. He only gets scared if there isn't someone around incase he falls to help him not hit his head. All you can do he let him finsish the shaking than he is fine.

Is she still an angry black woman blaming white people for all of her cultures ills? She Sharpton and Jackson have done more to keep Black poor people poor than any Corporate or Government cutback ever. I hope the next Generation leaves this feel sorry for us and revenge behind them and get on with living like the rest of the population has. The only ones who have benefited from this approach is the aforementioned 3 names.

I know people who were there and as far as they are concerned they got shafted big time. Apparently Whoopi was NOT out on stage very long at all when the man had a stroke. Tickets were over 200 bucks and Whoopie decides to leave because someone gets ill?? I do not get it, the man was taken out and there is nothing more she could do so why did she stop her show??Rip Off!! If someone did that to her she would be bitchin big time!!
