Funnyman Dick Van Dyke isn't laughing right now.

The 87-year-old actor, best known for his own "Dick Van Dyke Show" in the '60s, the crime drama "Diagnosis Murder" in the '90s, and movies such as "Mary Poppins" and "Night at the Museum," has canceled an appearance in New York next week because of fatigue and other symptoms caused by a "yet-to-be diagnosed neurological disorder," his rep told "Entertainment Tonight." Based on the advice of his doctor, Van Dyke will not be able to travel from his home in Malibu, California, to the 92nd Street Y in New York, where he will be honored with the organization's first Lifetime Achievement Award for Bettering Humanity Through Comedy.

Van Dyke, an avid Twitter user, has described some of his symptoms to his followers, who suggested that the star could be dealing with an issue in the sinuses or inner ear.

The Missouri native added that, unfortunately, the symptoms are not a new thing.

Van Dyke's rep, Bob Palmer, told USA Today that "various medications have not diminished the symptoms." He added that the actor is "otherwise in good physical condition" and exercises regularly.

Feel better soon, Dick!
