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.

Needless to say, I had the last laugh
Many moons ago, me and two mates had entered a Sports quiz at a local welfare type place. After the quiz a local "comedian" was promised. He came on, and was shite. As part of his act, he had a stuffed toy parrot on a stick. Halfway through, he passed said parrot-on-a-stick to a bloke in the audience - who then had the audience in stitches as the "parrot" duly heckled the comedian who blustered without much success through the remainder of his act.

The name of the comedian stuck in me and my mates' heads forever - John Willy Brown. To our amazement, he turned up on ITV's re-launched New Faces in the late 1980s - where he was crap and was mercilessly told so by Nina Myskow.

The guy did have one moment of inspiration though. After twenty minutes me and my mates decided we'd had enough and got up to leave. JWB said "Are you going? Did you lose the quiz?"

I said something like "Not as much as you've lost this audience," but armed with the mike JWB said "I'm thinking of going as well before the crowd turn ugly." He then pointed at me and said "Too late!"

Granted, I am not the best looking bloke in the world, but ugly? Well ... perhaps. I only heard of JWB once more in my lifetime ... until just before I wrote this message and googled him. He died last year!


I am still alive and plan to be for many more years, so needless to say, I had the last laugh.
