This is a question Heckles II

It was my privilege the other month to see a particularly foul and abusive heckler literally chased out of a comedy club by enraged punters. So: Comedy nights, staff meetings, football matches. Tell us of epic or rubbish heckles.

I was going to post this as a comment to the story below about Bill Hicks but felt it warrented its own airing.
I took my Dad to see Ken Dodd a few years ago. Doddy's age is showing a little more these days but he's still a great comedian from an age that we won't see again. Show usually go on for 5 hours...

Anyway, I got front row seats in the hope that Doddy would pick on my old man. Sadly, there was a bloke next to me who Doddy had discovered was from Wigan, so he spent most of his time making fun out of him.

When he asked the guy what he did for a living, the audience member (without breaking stride) said "I'm a tax accountant".

Doddy, with his well-documented history of tax problems, tottered visibly and said "By Jove! You're not are you?"

The bloke just said "no" and laughed.

Doddy muttered something like "ooo, you little rotter" or something equally lovely and gave a big goofy grin. Shook hands with the bloke at the end too. Good old Ken.

5 hours though? Bloody hell!

2 of them are spent with him trying to bend down to get a tickling stick out of the box.

He really is good.
The jokes come through so thick and fast, and they're all impeccably clean and silly, apart from the ones which are brilliantly suggestive in their wordplay, such as his description of his doctor: "Oh, he's a very kind man, you know. He keeps his stethoscope warm underneath his tom-cat before shoving it up your singlet" and stuff like that. Love it.

"So... whaddayou do?"
"Talent scout."

Only works if the comedian is a total nobody, though... TV panel show regulars wont give a shit.

Dodd is the only "old-school" comedian that I'd go to see.
I've only ever heard good things about his shows.
