Comedian Chris Redd Sucker Punched by Stranger Wearing Brass Knuckles

Last month it was reported that Kenan Thompson's former Saturday Night Live co-star Chris Redd was dating Kenan's estranged wife Christina Evangeline [click here if you missed that]. 

In totally unrelated news Chris was sucker punched by a stranger wearing brass knuckles on his way inside a comedy club...

From TMZ  

SNL's Chris Redd was leveled by a single punch in front of about a dozen shocked onlookers outside the Comedy Cellar in NYC.
Redd drove up to the Comedy Cellar in Greenwich Village and got out of his vehicle only to be attacked by the assailant. The suspect, who was apparently wearing brass knuckles and a security guard uniform, then ran off.
Redd's performance was canceled, but, thankfully, he's going to be OK as he nurses two black eyes and a gash to his nose.
Newly released surveillance footage from the club, obtained by NBC News, shows the exact moment an assailant threw a crushing blow to the face of the comedian, knocking Redd clear off his feet. You can see Chris writhing in pain after the punch.
