Amateur comedy gigs can be awkward at the best of times. But this one was pretty bad.
This is stand up comedian Adam Newman from New York doing a set in his home city, when a member of the audience is arrested by the NYPD. Now obviously, the show must always go on, so Adam tries to make light of the situation by asking the officers what’s happening. He’s then greeted with a cold hard “Shut the f*ck up”, before they drag the man out.
Gotta love the NYPD!
Adam handles the situation pretty well, admittedly. But it’s still a pretty awkward one.
The NYPD arrested an audience member during my set, then yelled at me to, "Shut the fuck up!" while I was on stage: http://t.co/hvRiJm6maL
