After performing for over two hours, the 57-year-old had one more story to tell before she closed the show but fainted on stage.

"This one's for you Wendy Williams," she joked, referring to when the talk show host fainted live on-air last week. "Girl down. I had a girl down moment."

She thanked her fans for being "forgiving and understanding" and promised "to be upright the entire show next time."

The New York Post reports the comedian was due to close the show with an anecdote about Mariah Carey but just went still and said, "I'm going down."

Kathy made headlines earlier this year for her controversial shoot which involved her holding a severed head that appeared to resemble US President Donald Trump.
