People being unable to shut the hell up has long been a staple of human life. Arguably, this is the primary reason why hecklers at comedy shows exist.
Generally, hecklers are awful. They mess up timing and pacing for the comic, and tend to throw the entire show off balance--therefore ruining the show for all other paying customers.
SOMETIMES though, hecklers add a great new element to live comedy. Given that the person they're ripping on makes fun of shit for a living, there's always a good chance that heckler will get thoroughly owned.
With that, here are 6 great instances in which hecklers were properly put in their place. Note that there are many, many more great takedowns, but (a. comedy did in fact exist before the invention of Youtube, and (b. a lot of times, these things tend to be taken off the internet.
1. Joe Rogan owns a UFC Fan
Joe Rogan explains the tragedy of what happens when you take yourself too seriously. Probably the most impressive component here is how long he manages to keep it up.
2. Bryson Turner Destroys Heckler's Sex Joke
Based on the crowd's reaction, it's pretty hard to believe that anyone would be able to come back from that. Turner's restraint in waiting till the cheering died down--building on both his own humilation and his own incredible punch--drives this one home quite excellently.
3. Jamie Kennedy Rips Restaurant Girl
Jamie Kennedy, the main homie of the illustrious Malibu's Most Wanted, is not happy when a heckler interrupts his special taping over a technicality. He proceeds to take her down in pretty impressive fashion. Kennedy and hecklers have had an interesting relationship, which manifested itself fully in the 2007 documentary "Heckler."
