Howie Mandel says he’s “doing better” after collapsing outside a Starbucks in Los Angeles.

The America’s Got Talent judge was with his wife and friends Wednesday morning when he “suddenly passed out, falling over and then being laid out on a cement bench,” witnesses told TMZ.

The incident happened in the Woodland Hills neighborhood of the city and paramedics rushed Mandel to a hospital in nearby Tarzana.

Hours later, the comedian offered an update on his condition with a statement on Twitter.

“I am home and doing better. I was dehydrated and had low blood sugar,” he tweeted at 5:28 p.m. “I appreciate the great doctors and nurses that took such good care of me. Thank you to everyone who reached out but I am doing ok!”

The medical scare came just four days after Mandel revealed on social media that he had undergone an endoscopy and colonoscopy.

The TV veteran shared a video of himself on Instagram in a hospital bed and included the caption: “The patient in the next bed recognized my voice and tried to audition for AGT as he was waking up.”

Mandel has been a judge on AGT since 2010. He’s also hosted Deal or No Deal.
