LEWISVILLE (AP) - The comedian Gallagher has been released from a Texas hospital, a week after suffering a heart attack before a performance at a suburban Dallas bar.

His promotional manager, Christine Scherrer, says the Los Angeles-based comedian was released Wednesday but will stay in the Dallas area for a while to recuperate.

Scherrer says Gallagher is with his family and is “moving around on his own.”

Gallagher, known for smashing watermelons with a sledgehammer, had two stents replaced after collapsing March 14 at a Lewisville bar. He came out of a medically induced coma Sunday.

The comedian, whose full name is Leo Anthony Gallagher, had a minor heart attack last March after collapsing while performing in Minnesota.

Sherrer says March shows have been moved, but Gallagher’s April schedule is intact so far.
