For some reason, I spent some time last night searching the YouTubes for comedians being heckled.
I doubt if I would be able to stand up in front of people telling jokes. Add a heckler to the crowd and I would be reduced to a pile of weeping goo.
I’m interested in how different comedians respond to hecklers, who are for the most part producers of noise cancer.
I found a handful of nifty videos, but this one of Richard Herring at the Wam Bam Club deboning a heckler (in a very friendly and polite way, I must add) was absolutely wonderful:
