In one of the replies, Flanagan mentions he’s having some pretty bad chest pains, which likely means he developed pneumonia. We don’t know if he was vaccinated or not. His friends/family have not confirmed nor denied.
Flanagan was a semifinalist on Last Comic Standing back in 2015, he then went on to release multiple comedy albums, as well as landing multiple roles on several different television shows. He had a guest starring role on ‘Shameless‘ and most recently had appearances in The Neighborhood and Room 104.
According to the reports, he had just landed one of his first feature gigs, co-starring in the upcoming Aubrey Plaza thriller film, Emily the Criminal.
