Fans of a British comedian are shocked after he announced an audience member called the police on him over a joke he made…
British comedian, Joe Lycett, was questioned by the police following one of his stand-up shows, after offending an audience member.
They allegedly called the police following his comedy show, and Lycett has spoken out about the whole ordeal, giving a hilarious explanation of what went on…
Lycett took to social media to share the news with his fans, writing: “So someone came to my tour show a few weeks back and was offended by one of the jokes. And their perfectly understandable response to this was… to call the f****** police.”
Explaining the situation, Lycett wrote that “the fuzz” were “very nice about it all” but felt they “had a duty to investigate” the matter.
He added: “This involved me writing a statement explaining the context of the joke for them; I particularly enjoyed putting the words ‘giant donkey d***’ into a message to a police detective.”
Despite the joke clearly causing quite the stir, he has since announced he would be keeping it in his upcoming shows since the police have now closed the investigation.
“You’ll be pleased to know that the joke – which I consider to be one of the best I’ve ever written – remains firmly and proudly in the show,” he said.
He concluded his chaotic post, jokingly writing: “The tour continues until September unless I am jailed.”
Along with Lycett, fans found the whole thing pretty hilarious…
One Twitter user commented on his post: “Haha omg, sorry this happened but this has cracked me up. But also calling the police about a joke ffs wth?!”
Another fan replied: “I have witnessed this joke in Cardiff last week and can confirm it was f****** hilarious.”
“The joke is both hilarious and horrifying in equal measures… the best type of joke,” a third said.
