Comedian Tig Notaro had to cancel her Nov. 9 show at the Paramount Theatre due to a medical emergency.

According to the Denver Post, AEG Live released a statement that Notaro “is dealing with a medical emergency and is being hospitalized.” The statement continued: “She will be all right but has to cancel the show tonight.”

Although Notaro underwent a double mastectomy after her breast cancer diagnosis in 2012, and it is unknown whether this hospitalization is related.

According to a Nov. 9 post on Notaro’s Facebook page, “Tig’s Denver show tonight will unfortunately have to be rescheduled due to an unforeseen hospitalization. Everyone’s patience and understanding is much appreciated. Thank you.”

Notaro’s show is set to be rescheduled.

UPDATE: Notaro took to her Facebook page to post a video and an update about the ruptured cyst that caused her collapse saying: “dearest humans- it is me, tig. (notaro.) thanks to everyone for your support and concern. i am happy to say that i am finally on the mend! what happened you ask? well, after my ridiculously fun show in philly, as i was about to leave the venue, i collapsed in horrific pain, rushed to the ER and found that a cyst had burst causing MASSIVE internal bleeding. they thought the hemorrhaging would stop and heal on its own, but unfortunately it did not. so, after a couple of horribly uncomfortable days of pain, they had to do surgery to stop it and clean up my insides. too much information? not enough information? we will leave it at that. thanks again and please know that i’m resting on a ton of drugs, walking when i can, doing my breathing exercises and trying my darnedest to get back to this tour that has been nothing short of the best time. thanks again and see your faces soon!”
