Comedians share the worst heckle they’ve ever had (WATCH)

“And she stood up and said, ‘It’s just not funny!'”

Welcome to the third instalment in our video series Comedians Answer Our Questions, featuring a number of funny people appearing in this year’s NZ International Comedy Festival. This time we asked comedians to tell us about the worst heckle they’ve ever had. The answers we got back ranged from classics like “Who even are you?” and people falling asleep to more obscure insults like “Lose weight!”

Starring Donna Brookbanks, Eli Matthewson, The Fan Brigade, Joel Hansby & Josh Davies, Tim Batt, and Penny Ashton. Click on their names to buy tickets to their comedy festival shows!
