It was clear Ralphie May was in declining health the night before his unexpected death, and barely got through a scheduled meet and greet after his final performance.
According to an audience member at May’s Thursday night show at Harrah’s in Las Vegas, the audience had to line up and walk over to him for a meet and greet after the show because the comedian said he couldn’t make the walk.
We’re told his eyes were glassy and he seemed tired, but was “incredibly nice” to everyone waiting in line to meet him.
As we previously reported, another audience member told us May appeared “pale and sweaty,” after battling pneumonia for several weeks.
May had been so sick recently, he was unable to accept an award for “Casino Comedian of the Year,” despite his team telling event organizers he was “feeling better.”
Unfortunately, May was discovered Friday morning at a private residence in Las Vegas, dead after suffering an apparent cardiac arrest.
