Comedian Hannibal Buress ejects lamp-wielding heckler

Say what you what about Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s undisputed capitol of hipsterdom, but one thing it’s got going is smart, attentive people who are supportive of the arts. It’s known to New York comics as a fun place to put on a show, which is what makes the heckler in this Hannibal Buress video stick out like a horribly unwanted sore thumb.

Hecklers come in all shapes and sizes. Most of the time, their disruption is short and easily dealt with. Every so often though, there’s some idiot who wants attention and just won’t shut the fuck up. In the video below, we see how Buress deals with a persistently disruptive nuisance at the show he hosts every Sunday at the Knitting Factory. Keep in mind that Buress only gets nasty after the guy proves he’s a piece of shit who can’t take a hint.

    Fuck, I was gonna go to this show, I missed this. That guy was a complete piece of shit. Good for Hannibal, he didn’t even get that nasty, he showed a lot of restraint.
