Comic actor Rob Schneider was back on the set of his directorial debut film a day after collapsing from heat exhaustion and food poisoning, his spokeswoman said Friday.

Schneider, a former “Saturday Night Live” player and star of such films as “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo,” was taken to the San Joaquin General Hospital in central California Wednesday after he fell ill on the set of “Big Stan,” spokeswoman Shara Koplowitz said.

“Rob had a slight case of food poisoning and the 107 heat brought on nausea,” Koplowitz said. “He went to the hospital, was treated for nausea and released the same day.”

He returned to work on his film, being shot near the city of Stockton, the next day.

Koplowitz did not comment on what Schneider might have eaten that caused food poisoning.

“Big Stan,” a comedy that marks the actor’s feature debut as a director, stars Schneider as a con artist who is jailed for fraud but takes martial-arts lessons to ward off any advances from fellow inmates.
