Adam Sandler interrupted his I Missed You stand-up tour on Wednesday night to help a distressed audience member. In a video recorded by a fan at the show (source: The Daily Mail), Sandler brings up the lights to call for medical assistance while asking the audience to wait patiently.
While performing in San Jose, California, Sandler paused his set to allow medical staff to tend to the fan. As they hurried to help, he addressed the audience, saying, “Let’s take a few seconds, we’ll just let these guys concentrate, alright? Love y’all.”
Following the incident, Sandler continued his performance and wished the individual a swift recovery. It was later disclosed that the fan had been dehydrated but recovered fully. The comedian’s expert handling of the situation earned him praise from fans on TikTok, where the video went viral.
