Stand-up comedian Chris Cotton has died at the age of 32, demands a new report from E! Online. Cotton, who was best known for his work on the comedy network, Comedy Central, died earlier this week for unspecified causes, although Radar Online says it was linked to obesity.
In addition, the media highlighted the most tragic aspect of the story: the fact that Chris and his wife, Ericalynn Cotton, were expecting a child in February next year. A statement by the network spoke of Cotton’s death by declaring him to be a “hilarious comedian” and a “member of the Comedy Central family”.
Cotton worked on the network’s online talk show series, Every D * mn Day. After his death, other comedians and stars shouted at Mr. Cotton, including Hannibal Burress, who went to his Twitter account to commemorate Chris.
Cotton is said to have been in New York last week to perform at the Carolina Big Apple on Broadway. A GoFundMe page has been created to support Cotton’s pregnant woman.
As mentioned above, Radar Online claims that Cotton’s death was caused by complications from very serious obesity. An autopsy report revealed that there was a blood clot in his lungs that caused his heart to stop. The reviewer wrote in the report, “The major contributing conditions to death are morbid obesity.”
