I believe it was Laurence Olivier who was appearing as Richard III and calling out the famous line "A Horse! My Kingdom for a horse!" Immediately after, someone in the audience gets scattered laughter with "HEE HAWWWW!" and Olivier, never skipping a beat, points to the heckler and improvizes "if no horse is available, yon Braying Ass will do!", bringing down the house.
