Perhaps the worst ever opening to a comedy show was made by the ever controversal Jerry Sadowitz, who once opened a show at Montreal Comedy Festival with the line "Hello moosef***ers!" followed by "I tell you why I hate Canada, half of you speak French, and the other half let them". At which point a member of audience went onto the stage and knocked him unconscious.

Typical Sadowitz, he got a similar reception at the Queen Margaret Union in Glasgow.

Pretty good bio of Gerry.

That appears to be an almost direct copy of this Wikipedia article.

Also, for those interested, Sadowitz's new 2010 tour is called "I'd Happily Punch Frankie Boyle in the Face".

Is it or is the Wikipedia a direct copy of it?

I have a copy of the Total Abuse Show which I will probably watch when I get home today.

In September of 1996 Craig Charles opened his routine at my (Scottish) university's union by running onto the stage and firing a pair of cap guns into the audience. It did not go down well.

I went to a show of his in the same year and he did the same thing. It went down quite well!

Was yours mere months, and mere miles, from Dunblane?

There has been some sad news relating to something that is quite interesting. Comedy writer Laurie Rowley has died aged 68. The quite interesting thing about him is that he wrote the "Darts" sketch for Not the Nine O'Clock News which resulted in drinking being banned from the game.
