Heckler asks comedian Darren Frost about his cancer, comedian destroys heckler (Video)

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s post, in which we relate the story of a heckler who ended his night with a wrought iron fence inside of his body, comes this delectable, exquisite and wholly satisfying interaction between one amazingly moronic audience member and one amazingly seasoned stand-up comedian: Darren Frost.

The Canadian comic known for his painfully honest act – he’s put out three DVDS and is also a respected voice actor – attacks a misguided man who, after Frost mentions he had battled cancer, demands a specific explanation from Frost as to how he battled said cancer.

To give you further background, Frost explains his mention of “cancer” in his act. “I was talking about having vasectomy problems due to the thickness of my testicles,” he writes on his YouTube page, “and how 1 in 1,000 dudes has problems and I say ‘I am not a lucky guy that 1 in 1,000 odds are not good for me …in the last five years I have fought cancer, diabetes, two of my children have had open heart surgery and now I have thick skin testicles to have to worry about.’”

That’s probably enough exposition for now. Let’s roll the tape, shall we?

So, how do you think Frost handled the situation? Would you have handled it differently? Sound off in the comments section!

    Don’t quite get why people like that even leave the house! I guess they just want to try to wreck everyone else’s night. Great to embarrass the hell out of him!

  • Kevin

    I feel bad for the heckler in question… The poor guy didn’t “appreciate” Darren had cancer.

    • Kevin

      I repeat: He didn’t “appreciate” Darren Frost had FUCKING CANCER!

        fucking cancer is way worse then normal cancer

      No he didn’t appreciate the performance. And he should have shut the fuck up or leave. At a boxing match would you jump up and try to fight the winner if you didn’t like his performance? No… so why get in the ring with a seasoned comedian??? Jerk off deserved what he got.

    I also thinks this needs a bit more context since a lot of comedians will be watching this here…
    the person who heckled had sat in the front row of the show and did not laugh once during my set. Up to this point it was 35 minutes of standup. He sat arms crossed and a sour look on his face. That is very important to know as people think he was just trying to be sympathetic to my cancer. He was not.

      Dude that was fucking awesome…. well done, man.

      And sympathetic, offended, menstruating, or whatever the excuse is. You never open your mouth negatively at a performance… EVER! Whether it’s comedy, music or as you said opera, it is a common courtesy to shut the fuck up no matter how shitty your evening is. Kudos, man.

    yeah the heckler is obviously a douche bag, but that wasn’t that good of a comeback.

    • Mr. IDGAC

      people seem to think it was a shit comeback because “the guy isnt very funny” or “he curses a lot”- but that is completely irrelevant.

      Like Rob said, you never EVER open your mouth negatively at a comedy show;
      if you dont like the comedian- then Just. Fucking. Leave!

      The opera metaphor was a perfect example;
      Just because YOUUUU personally dont like something doesnt mean YOUUU should open your
      stupid mouth and harass the comic about a passing comment he made earlier- and be a “douchebag” as you said.

      However, not everything has to be about snappy comebacks or witty banter;
      not every heckler gets dealt with the way jimmy carr would would;

      Comedians arent just fucking jukeboxes who HAVE to make EVERYTHING funny or ‘they suck’- sometimes they have to address REAL shit on stage; not every waking moment has to be hysterical.

      This out of touch twat asked a REAL fucking question- and he got a REAL fucking answer.
