Adam Sandler has been praised after he stopped a live show after seeing a fan having a medical emergency.

On Wednesday (October 18), the 57-year-old comedian was entertaining audiences at a stand-up show in San Jose, California, when a fan suddenly required medical assistance.

In clips of the incident posted to social media, you can hear someone shout to get the actor's attention before the set was stopped and professionals came onto the scene to treat the audience member.

According to the footage, which was later shared by TMZ, Sandler helped guide the medics to the fan who was then removed from the crowd to be treated in a safer area.

"Let’s take a few seconds, we’ll just let these guys concentrate, alright? Love y’all," the star told the crowd, while letting the staff help the man out. "We’re all wishing you well there, youngster, feel better back there. Sorry about that."

"I hope everybody’s good, everybody’s alright. We’ll get going, we’ll start the show back up, alright?" he added before continuing with his set list.

Have a look at the video below:

After the clip was posted to social media, many took to X to praise Sandler for his actions.

"This is why Adam Sandler will always be my favorite comedian," wrote one person. "Very underrated!"

"A man of the people!" added another.

Fox News reported that the incident took place at Sandler's 'I Missed You Tour', which only started last week and is set to continue all the way until the end of the year.

His other upcoming project, which we don't have many details for yet, sees him reunite with the Safdie brothers, the duo behind his acclaimed 2019 crime drama, Uncut Gems.

The news comes just shortly after the star sat down with AARP magazine and delved deeper into other parts of his life - in particular, his marriage.

"Here’s the secret: Jackie and I like spending time with each other," he told the outlet. "We try to make each other laugh, try to listen, try to include each other, try to support each other. We try our best - that’s all. And we don’t ever think of not being together. We always talk about our future together."

He then talked about how his perspective had changed from focusing on his career, to now shifting his attention to his family.

"My wife and I go to sleep talking about the girls," he said referring to his daughters, 17-year-old Sadie and 14-year-old Sunny. "They have so much ahead, and I feel nervous for them, excited for them. As a parent, you just want to make sure your kids are OK when it’s time for them to take off."

He continued: "But teenagers are complicated. They’d rather spend time with friends than sitting at home with us all the time. They make fun of me if I do something idiotic with my phone. They’ll say: 'Here, gimme the phone. You do it like this.'

However, the funnyman stated that he doesn't always take their advice on board on purpose as a bonding tactic: "Usually, I’ll just ignore it and keep doing it wrong, because it gives them a reason to talk to me."
