This is a question Heckles

Forget the drunk bloke at the back yelling incoherent nonsense. Sometimes a well placed heckle can raise a mediocre act to a brilliant night out.
Tell us your best heckles and, if you are brave, the retorts that put you back in your place like the maggot you are.

Edinburgh Festival. Phil Davey, I think his name was
He was an Aussie stand-up, highly recommended by The Sun. Dunno why...

I'd been drinking somewhat. He wasn't being particularly funny, and then he started ranting about Animal Hospital being shite (I agree. But that's not hilarious stuff) and then about Rolf Harris, and what had he ever done for Australia, the miserable fucker.

I piped up "He won gold for Australia in swimming at the 1962 olympics"*. (I have no idea where that came from in my drunken mind)

He replied "Fuck off, mate, no way". And then some other people in the audience started murmuring and backing me up.

This really put him off his stride. After about 20 seconds of silence, he then turned on me.
What are you doing here in Edinburgh mate?

"I'm a student".

What are you studying?



Presumably there wasn't any comedy mileage in that. So he went off onto some scatalogical comedy shite, which was funnier.

* Actually, Google informs that Rolf was the Australian junior backstroke swimming champion.
