NYPD Cop Tells Comedian To ‘Shut The F*ck Up’ While Arresting Someone At A Stand-Up Show

by 3 years ago


I’ve witnessed some awkward things transpire at stand-up shows in New York: Lame attempts to heckle comedians, drunks who spill the drinks over audience members in the middle of a set, old people who get extremely offended, thinking a comedian shouldn’t talk about subjects most adults over the age of 18 should be able to handle. Stand-up comedian Adam Newman, however, had a real curveball thrown at him when the NYPD entered a comedy club he was performing at and arrested someone in the audience. Here’s the known backstory, according to Newman:


Since Newman is still on stage, he tries to make lemons out of lemonade and, understandably, inquire to the police officers about what’s going on. He’s greeted by a warm, New York “WHY DON’T YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP?!” from the NYPD officer in what might be the most awkward heckler interaction ever…

Newman is a pretty funny dude, so be sure to check out his Comedy Central clips, in addition to the awkward exchange with the NYPD below.
