You know what’s probably really cool about being a female comic? Aside from constantly fighting the uphill battle that is being a chick in a wholly male-dominated industry (if you don’t have a Netflix special, ya don’t got shit), as well as battling the baffling stereotype that women simply are not funny, it’s probably really cool to be onstage doing your bit when some dude from the crowd shouts “SHOW US YOUR TITS!” as though it’s cute or has any chance of working.
That’s probably really cool. Oh wait, no, it’s actually the worst, as our beloved Amy Schumer experienced during the first two minutes of a recent show in Stockholm.
First came the public blasting. “Okay wait, I want the guy who just yelled ‘show us your tits’ to come up here,” she said, “everybody point at him, so I know which one.” The camera zooms in on the not-abashed-enough culprit, and Amy asks, “And you’re wearing a shirt that says ‘I love what?’” (It was ‘pussies.’ This dude was actually wearing a shirt that said ‘I love pussies’, which as everyone knows is the biggest indicator he’s never actually seen a pussy before.) He then proceeded to laugh maniacally, as though interrupting a performer by screaming “show us your tits” is somehow loads funnier than whatever Schumer was saying.
When the obvious-virgin-man refused to come onstage, Schumer addressed him in his seat. “What do you do for a living? Sales. How’s that working out? Is it going well? ‘Cause we’re not buying it.”
She then issued a gentle threat: “That’s really cute, but if you yell out again, you’re going to be yelling ‘Show us your tits’ to people in the parking lot because you’re going to get thrown out, motherfucker.”
Would you actually expect a man wearing an ‘I love pussies’ t-shirt to know when to stop? Of course not. He proceeded to shout another inaudible garbage sentiment, probably, after which he was promptly escorted from the building.
Goodbye, sir, and kindly consider setting your outfit and maybe yourself on fire before opening your mouth ever again.
