D.L. was performing at Zanies Comedy Club to a sold out crown when around 11p.m. things started to go wrong as he speech slurred and passed out on stage per TMZ.

He was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for exhaustion due to traveling and working and was kept overnight for observation.

D.L. went to social media to thank his fans for the thoughts and prayers and to give an update on his health, but outside of being treated for exhaustion he also informed his fans he has tested positive for COVID-19.

He was completely shocked because he showed no symptoms, but Doctors told him he was Asymptomatic and now he will be self quarantined in his hotel room for fourteen days until it passes.

While we wish D.L. a speedy recovery I hope this will be a reminder to all of us that we are still not out of the woods with COVID-19 as parts of the country start to reopen.

Please continue to social distance yourself and wear a mask at all times.
