Hecklers are the comedian’s natural enemy, particularly for new comics. Though it’s one thing to be told “you suck” while performing and quite another to deal with someone physically attacking you during a set. I guess when you combine offensive and/or terrible jokes with two drink minimums, something’s gotta give. Here are 6 stand-up comics getting punched on stage:
Come for the racist seminar, stay for the punching.
Pushing his fist inwards into his face?
Skip to 2:00 for the punch… line? Nope, just the punch.
He’s a lady charmer, this guy.
Get him out of here and over to a Chuck E. Cheese parking lot, where that kind of behavior is normal.
If more comedians were this polite about people punching them in the face, comedy clubs would become blood sport arenas.
