Crystal Lake comedian event canceled due to injury
An event featuring comedian and actor Larry Miller at the Raue Center for the Arts in Crystal Lake has been canceled.
Miller, known for his appearances on "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Seinfeld," and several Garry Marshall-directed films, was scheduled to perform Jan. 12.
The Raue Center announced the cancellation at rauecenter.org and asked that anyone with questions call the Box Office at (815) 356-9212.
According to an article in "People" magazine released Tuesday, the 58-year-old actor has been recovering from a life-threatening brain injury. He reportedly fell and hit his head last April.
"Obviously, Raue Center is committed to our patron base. We were terribly disappointed to receive the news on Monday that Larry would not be joining us," Executive Director Richard Kuranda said. "That being said, we encourage the entire community to send prayers and good thoughts out to Larry as we hope for a speedy recovery. Those impacted will receive a full refund or they can choose to see another show out of Raue's fantastic line up."
Miller's spokesman revealed that Miller had gone into a coma and was then put on life support at UCLA Medical Center for one month, according to "People."
The spokesman told "People" that once he regained consciousness, Miller underwent a long recovery process to re-master basic cognitive functions. He is expected to make full recovery and return today to his podcast series, "This Week with Larry Miller," according to "People."
