While Neil was on stage, a woman yelled “I love you, Neil!!” and the actor responded, in character, “Who’s Neil? I’m not Neil.’ He looked to another actor, Lena Hall and said, “Are you Neil? You better not be Neil.” Undeterred, he shouted ““I’m doing something up here, motherf**ker!”
Page Six initially reported the expletive, and Gossip Cop gave a bit more context surrounding the incident. Both outlets agreed that NPH’s retort was met with a huge round of applause and the improvisational bit was a big hit with the audience.
Despite being busy with Hedwig, the 40-year-old How I Met Your Mother star managed to get in some family time with his husband David Burtka and their four-year-old twins, Gideon and Harper. Neil posted this cute photo to his Instagram account yesterday.
“Been having a wonderful Easter Sunday with @DavidBurtka and my two favorite bunnies.”
