Darrell Hammond is suffering from injuries following a recent car accident.
The former Saturday Night Live star fractured ribs and injured his back when his car collided with another vehicle in the Hamptons according to reports.
Lawyers for Hammond have filed a lawsuit against the other driver, claiming that the actor has been unable to stand for long periods of time since the crash.
Attorney Melanie Little insisted that Hammond’s ability to perform stand-up comedy has been severely affected, saying: “He’s in pain and had to cancel many performances. He can’t fly and he can’t stand up.”
Hammond first joined Saturday Night Live in 1995, soon becoming popular for his impressions ofBill Clinton, Donald Trump and Hardball host Chris Matthews.
He left SNL in 2009 after a 14-year run on the programme, but has returned sporadically for guest appearances.
