Chris Redd claimed that while en route to the Comedy Cellar to perform a set, a man suddenly struck him in the face with what he thought to be a metal object. He claimed that it “cut my nose to the bone,” calling the amount of blood “worrisome.”

The “SNL” star reported suffering two fractures in his nose and one fracture in his cheek due to the assault. Chris Redd added, “The person just attacked me and went off,” adding that his face was covered in “so much blood” that he couldn’t clearly distinguish the assailant.
