GUEST,kenny Heckling at Folk Clubs (77* d) RE: Heckling at Folk Clubs 11 Oct 18


Billy Connolly never got much heckling when I saw him because he was so good - and fairly brutal [ usually verbally ] -at dealing with it. There was a story which he told himself about a guy repeatedly shouting for "Needle Of Death" from the audience at Dundee Folk Club. This guy wouldn't take the hint, so the Big Yin ended up smacking him one.
Billy was good at dealing with hecklers, but Danny Kyle was the absolute master !
I remember Michael Marra getting heckled once at Forfar Folk Club. He was telling a joke about the Lone Ranger, and got to the point where "300 Indians came over the ridge..." A voice comes from the audience... "What were their names and addresses ?" :)
