A video has emerged showing a stand-up comedian losing his cool at an audience for not laughing at his jokes. Take a look below:
It seems as if the comedian was having a bad show, but rather than taking it on the chin and getting through the set, he decided to lecture the audience about why it’s all their fault.
Talk about a bad day at the office.
While we don’t know a huge deal about the comedian, he started off the rant by saying he’d been doing stand up comedy for ten years.
He continues: “But this one night I’m going to realise every other audience was wrong and you’re right.
“Maybe I’m not funny right now but I don’t think you’re the one who’s going to derail this.”
Revealing to the crowd that he moved 3000 miles, gave up his life and toured Europe for four years, he says: “For some reason, right now, you think, ‘You’re not funny, f**k off.’”
The comedian then told the crowd, who began to (seemingly sarcastly) applause and cheer: “Maybe you should accept this isn’t the easiest f**king gig in the world.
“I’m in a f**king corridor, the lights are one, everyone’s here at work parties. It’s hard, I’m trying, if you don’t like it, you f**k off.”
At this point, a woman in the crowd tells him to ‘stop swearing’, to which he responds: “Stop swearing? It’s comedy.
“If you wanted a clean comedy show, go to a clean comedy show. You don’t get to dictate what happens. Alright the show will continue now with less energy than before.”
You can almost feel the awkwardness through the screen.
Safe to say, the internet had a lot to say about the outburst, with one Redditor commenting: “Having nights where you completely bomb is extremely common in stand up.
“You have to reflect on what went wrong and learn from it. This guy standing on stage b***hing and whining about bombing is just sad.
“Unless he learns some important lessons, he will get nowhere in the stand up world.”
A second wrote: “Dude acting like he’s never heard of comics bombing before. Or heckling. Or how to write jokes.”
“Time for someone to consider a career change…,” commented another, while a fourth simply wrote: “Wow.”
