Funnyman Damon Wayans has scrapped a series of stand-up shows following a diabetes-related medical emergency.
The comedian was supposed to perform in Missouri on Saturday night (21Feb15), but sources close to Wayans tell Tmz.com he was unable to fly to the gig because of his ongoing battle with Type 2 diabetes.
Insiders reveal there are more dates Wayans is planning to reschedule, including a series of dates in Buffalo, New York next month (Mar15).

Wayans has assured his fans he's going to be Ok, tweeting, "#diabetes #im alright #thankforthrloveandsupport."
