You know what took a lot of pressure off a lot of stand up comics?
Another standup comic taking a dive for the team so the focus was on him.
He knew exactly what he was going to do and spoke to several people prior to it happening.

Comedian DL Hughley tests positive for coronavirus after collapsing onstage in Nashville
Comedian and actor D.L. Hughley announced he has tested positive for coronavirus after collapsing onstage while performing in Nashville, Tenn., on Friday night, according to reports.
“I was what they call asymptomatic,” Hughley says in a Twitter video. “I didn’t have any symptoms, the classic symptoms.”
Hughley said he still hasn’t exhibited any of the typical symptoms associated with the coronavirus, including shortness of breath and fever.
“So, in addition to all the other stuff you have to look out for,” Hughley advises in the video, if you “pass out in the middle of a show, onstage, you probably need to get tested.”
Hughley said he plans to quarantine in his Nashville hotel room for 14 days.
While performing Friday night at Zanies Comedy Club before a sold-out crowd, Hughley, 57, suddenly struggled to speak before going limp.
His manager rushed to catch him before he fell off his seat entirely, but he needed help to carry Hughley offstage. – Source
