Bobcat Goldthwait, Dana Gould Show Canceled After Atlanta Car Wreck

Bobcat Goldthwait and Dana Gould have canceled tonight’s 40 Watt show after the two comedians were injured in a car wreck in Atlanta Thursday evening.

The accident occurred near the Relapse Theatre, where the pair were scheduled to perform Thursday. According to Fox 5:

The crash happened around 6:25 p.m. near the corner of 14th and Mecaslin streets. Atlanta Police said the woman driving the comedians was arrested for driving on a suspended license out of California and was cited for failure to yield while turning left. The driver’s name has not been released.

Goldthwait and Gould suffered minor injuries and were taken to Atlanta’s Grady Memorial Hospital.

The venue will issue full refunds on ticket purchases, according to a Facebook post.
