A local comedian is not letting an unexpected stroke slow him down.
46-year-old John Sheehan is already planning his next comedy show after suffering a stroke only days ago.
Sheehan had only just dropped his girlfriend off at work on Monday when he started feeling unwell. He has a family history as his mother passed away from a stroke a few years ago and he was familiar with the warning signs.
He came home, lost his balance, and then his right side went numb. That’s when the ambulance was called and he was administered TPA which reversed the results of the stroke.
If you feel warning signs of a stroke, don’t waste time.I’m 46, and it happened yesterday. I was lucky that we got here…

Sheehan is thankful that such quick action was taken and he got the necessary treatment within the critical window that allowed him a full recovery.
The comedian has already developed new material from the experience and has a show coming up October 17th at Tol’s Time Out Lounge. He feels back to himself and says the drug “really did the trick.” He admits he has to make a few changes, but he’s up for it.
