Cops released surveillance footage Friday of the suspect wanted in the Manhattan slugging of former “Saturday Night Live” star Chris Redd.
The attacker was caught on video walking around 9:45 p.m. Wednesday near the Comedy Cellar club, where Redd, 37, was decked “out of nowhere” around the same time and left hospitalized with a broken nose, according to police and sources.
In the clip, the alleged attacker is shown walking down the street in a blue jacket, blue shirt, black pants, a multicolored fedora hat and a black face mask.
Cops said he is between 35 and 40 years old, 6 feet 2 inches tall and about 280 pounds.
The famed comedian had been at the MacDougal Street club to perform a 15-minute set and was standing outside when the suspect walked over and knocked him in the face before running off, cops said.
“There was blood everywhere,” a source told Page Six.
Cops don’t suspect the attack is related to the “knockout game” — a sick street challenge where participants try to render unsuspecting bystanders unconscious with a single blow, police sources said.
Knockout attacks are typically committed by teens, and the suspect wanted for attacking Redd is believed to be middle-aged, sources said.
