Wife: Dangerfield in coma

Rodney Dangerfield has been in a coma for a couple of weeks after undergoing heart surgery, but has begun to show some awareness, his wife said Monday. The 82-year-old comedian was stable and had been breathing on his own for 24 hours, Joan Dangerfield said in a statement released by the comic's publicist. Dangerfield had a heart valve replaced Aug. 25 at the University of California, Los Angeles, Medical Center. There was no mention of a coma in a condition update from the publicist last week.
