Russell Brand Calls Out Katy Perry Heckler During Atlantic City Stand Up Show (PHOTOS)
This past Saturday at Music Box in Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, an audience member at Russell Brand’s comedy show struck a nerve with the funnyman when he began chanting his ex Katy Perry’s name.
At first, Russell, 36, let it slide, but when the rowdy audience member refused to stop chanting, the Arthur actor decided to hop off stage and confront his heckler.
An eyewitness at the show tells Celebuzz:
“At one point Russell even had to tell an audience member in the front row to ‘shut-up’ as he was trying to put on a performance. He couldn’t seem to get a word in edge-wise with this very enthusiastic crowd.”
Once he found the pompous audience member yelling Katy’s name, Russell had some choice words, saying:
“It’s you, is it? Oh, dear. I was hoping that your personality was just a result of physical beauty. But then I saw you. I thought, ‘This guy’s confident, probably, because he’s incredibly handsome,’ but look at you. You look like somebody who’s fallen off the outside of a church. And what is it that you have rattling around your mind, some bizarre combination of alcohol and idiocy…some cocktail of nothing. And yet the confidence to continue shouting. They say of course, don’t they, that empty vessels make the most noise. What an enormous echo of nothingness from you.”
Russell’s rant didn’t stop there. “I think silence is your friend. I think keep your lips firmly, firmly clamped together. Because everything that comes out of your mouth, from your idiotic announcements to your disgusting halitosis that’s coming through this room, is an abomination.” Ouch!
The disruption in Russell’s show turned out to be quite the surprise of entertainment for the audience. To hear Russell’s rant in full check out the above video.
