Sooner or later every comic has to deal with some loud, obnoxious, drunk or opinionated audience member.
Generally these hecklers are awful because they mess up timing and pacing for the comic and tend to throw the entire show off balance – therefore ruining the show for all other paying customers.
SOMETIMES though, hecklers add a great new element to live comedy. Given that the person they’re ripping on makes fun of shit for a living, there’s always a good chance that heckler will get thoroughly owned.
Watch how some of the top comedians of the world deal with hecklers. These include Zach Gallinfinakis, Louis C.K, Joan Rivers and Amy Schumer.
