Shimbo Darktree Your Favourite Audience Insult/Comeback? (66* d) RE: Your Favourite Audience Insult/Comeback? 04 Mar 04

At our local folk club, regulars are so regular, and heckles are so familiar (repetitive), that one of our performers (I swear I won't mention your name, Anne), circulated a numbered list of comebacks. It is much easier to yell out "Five" than "Shut up Roger!". By the way, Roger is one of this forum's regulars, but wild horses won't make me tell you who! Roger is a professional heckler, and, because it is done without malice, the whole club including the performers (I am one) enjoys the by-play. So, there is a place for it, and I wouldn't do without it for quids!

Shimbo (you're not getting my name either)
