    It's not the first time that has happened.

    HA! Tommy Cooper died on stage (yes, there's video), as did Dick Shawn (no, not that I know of). Those are the comedians I can think of off the top of my head.

    What gets me morbidly tickled, is every time a Stage Performer clocks out on stage, the audience always thinks it's part of the act.

    I think Sid James also died on stage.

    You'd sort of think that for a performer, dying onstage during a performance - at the very end of the performance, just as they finish - would be like the second best thing that could happen. Right after never dying.
