Renowned interviewer of celebrities and musicians, and a favourite of Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams, Nardwuar the Human Serviette suffered a stroke on Saturday night at the Mint Records Christmas party in Vancouver.
Currently recovering at Vancouver General Hospital, the news comes from a post on his Twitter that also included a photo of an ambulance’s route away from the venue. The photo also offers more details, depicting a note that the ambulance was retrieving a “confused male” with an “altered level of consciousness.”

This is not the first time that Nardwuar has been hospitalised for neurological issues, suffering a cerebral haemorrhage in 1999, but recovering after surgery. Known for his often grating and confusing interview style as well as extensive research and giving interviewees rare and hard to find gifts relating to their career, celebrities such as Pharrell Williams and others have taken to social media to give their support to Nardwuar.
