    Scherrer says Gallagher is with his family and is "moving around on his own."

    Gallagher, known for smashing watermelons with a sledgehammer, had two stents replaced after collapsing March 14 at a Lewisville bar. He came out of a medically induced coma Sunday.

    The comedian, whose full name is Leo Anthony Gallagher, had a minor heart attack last March after collapsing while performing in Minnesota.

    Scherrer says March shows have been moved, but Gallagher's April schedule is intact so far.
