8:49 AM PT -- The NYPD tells us ... Joan is currently in critical condition.

We're told ... at one point, Joan's heart stopped beating.

It's unclear if doctors were able to restart the comic's heart.

I think we had the 3's: Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall and Sir Richard Attenborough.

Agree..why isn't her doctor operating on her at the hospital?

Maybe she wasn't really having throat surgery and was having plastic surgery again and that is why she was not in a real hospital to begin with.

I would think if you have plenty of money and at her age, you could have plastic surgery which is normally done at a surgery center, done at a hospital instead (if that's what she was doing).
