Comedian Chris Cotton, who died at the age of 32, claims a new report from E! Online. Cotton, known for his work on the Comedy Central comedy network, died earlier this week from unspecified causes, although Radar Online says it was related to obesity.
In addition, the media noted 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 from the network addressed Cotton's death by stating that he was a "hilarious comedian,quot; and a "member of the Comedy Central family."
Cotton worked on the network's online talk show series, Every day * 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.
Reportedly, Cotton was in New York City last week performing at the Caroline of the Big Apple on Broadway. A GoFundMe page was created in support of Cotton's pregnant wife.
As mentioned earlier, Radar Online states that Cotton's death was caused by very severe obesity complications. An autopsy report revealed that there was a blood clot in his lungs that caused his heart to stop. The examiner wrote in the report: "The important conditions that contribute to death are morbid obesity."
