He's either on something or he's blindingly drunk.

Probably both.

Still, though...

I'm not sure about the LF but at the Improv, I've seen people get escorted out. Someone on the staff should have been on the ball with the guy heckling him...or MR just should have plain stopped and requested he be removed.

Bummer....

Hecklers are a part of life in comedy. As a professional comedian, he should be able to deal with a heckler with a little self-control, at least.

Was he being heckled though? I know he said the guy was talking through the show. I didn't realize he was talking at him through the show.

You're right though Dave, heckling is almost expected, isn't it? I've seen them handled much better than that. Perhaps he has lost his touch.

Its a shame too, I was always a big fan of Stanley the janitor.

where did you hear this because the late show lists Jerry Seinfeld and Dan Patrick as guests?

Regarding this:


Comedian George Lopez told Los Angeles television station KTLA that he thought Richards' lack of stand-up experience may have been a factor.

“The question is you have an actor who is trying to be a comedian who doesn't know what to do when an audience is disruptive,” Lopez said. “He's an actor whose show has been off the air, he shouldn't ever be on a stand-up gig."

Exactly. People who don't believe that crap don't say it, no matter what the situation.

After watching it again, I would love to know how long he was being heckeled by the two on the balcony. My wife felt that he was not serious when he started thinking he was going to make a joke, and it went from bad, to worse when he did not stop.

I can almost see it, but, I really wonder how long he was trying to handle the situation.

I tend to agree with your wife. At first he seems to be trying "to be funny" - however misguided - you can even hear many in the audience laughing. Then he simply lost control of his emotions. And the more he lost control - the harder he tried to keep it going - a horrible cycle. I'm sure he knew at some point he had crossed the line.

I think it is more sad than anything else. Kramer was always my least favorite of the Seinfield characters (well, of the main four) - but I still loved the character - and by extension you sort of love the actor. Now, his career is probably over. (unless, God Forbid, he uses this as marketing)

I sort of agree. However, sometimes during a rage we exaggerate a feeling. Sometimes when I argue with my wife I will exaggerate something that ticks me off. Did I actually feel this way? Maybe a little. Did I feel this way in the manner I argued it? No way - I exaggerated the point because I was filled with anger and hurt during the argument.
