“I’m cancer-free,” Kathy announced as the audience applauded. “I don’t know why, I had a tumor, right? And I’ve never smoked, and it was in there for 10 years. So get this, they took it out and found it in another scan.”

Back in August, Kathy revealed that she was diagnosed with stage 1 lung cancer and had to have half of her left lung removed.

Knowing that she’s a comedian, Kathy said that her doctor tried to make a few jokes about the situation before she underwent the surgery.

“So I go in, and he’s like describing how they take half your lung out, and he goes, ‘It’s kind of a like a balloon,’” Kathy recalled.” So, we do it laparoscopically and we poke it, then he goes, ‘And when we take it out, kind of looks like a used condom.’ And then he goes, ‘You can use that.’”

Also during her interview, Kathy talked about the higher tone of her voice, which is due to her suffering vocal cord issues during the procedure.

“It will heal, but I’m sort of enjoying it,” Kathy said. “I’m a good two octave’s higher, I think.”

“Is it two octaves, really?” Jimmy asked.

“It might be. It’s higher than Mariah Carey, I know that,” Kathy jokingly responded.
