Jimmy Carr was left furious after a heckler disrupted his show in Poole and he had to get the help of his bodyguard to remove them from the crowd
Jimmy Carr’s personal bodyguard Stephen was forced to kick a heckler out of the audience at his Poole show after they kept interrupting.
The comedian, 49, was left furious after one individual went too far and ended up ruining his show on October 7, which prompted the 8 Out of Ten Cats panelist to have them removed.
In audio obtained from the show, Jimmy can be heard slamming the heckler and demanding they leave after taking things too far.
“Guys, stop negotiating with him and get him out the f***ing building,” Jimmy fumes.
He added: “Stephen does my security – he does not give a f**k.”
Jimmy added: “You’ve done this to yourself mate. If it’s any consolation, I’ll keep the money,” and “don’t forget to buy my book!”
An audience member, who was sat next to the heckler, told Dorset Live that they had been rude and disruptive.
“Initially they weren’t being abusive, just annoying thinking everyone was enjoying their constant interactions which were interrupting Jimmy’s flow and the audience’s enjoyment,” the audience member shared.
“Jimmy let them know that they were being annoying with his banter, but they were loving this attention and did not take the hint.”
Another audience member claimed Jimmy’s bodyguard “literally dragged” the heckler out of the crowd, while someone else told how the audience were cheering and applauding Stephen for removing the heckler.
Others said the disruption slightly delayed the show’s schedule and it meant they were about twenty minutes behind. But those who attended said they still loved the show.
In recent days, Jimmy revealed the name of his son and the meaning behind his only child’s moniker.
The funnyman recently revealed that he became a father for the first time two years ago, with his partner Karoline Copping, 46.
The Channel 4 star also opened up about how becoming a parent may impact his comedy.
“It could be a bit of a gear shift, because of the kind of comedy I do,” Jimmy told the Radio Times when discussing fatherhood.
“But so far, I’m still telling the same jokes, I’ve got the same sense of humour. We’ll see, because I’m sure I’m going to be writing a lot of material about him. In fact, I think he might be tax-deductible.”
