New York's finest don't have much appreciation for the art of stand-up comedy. Comedian Adam Newman was performing over the weekend when four police officers entered the club with flashlights and made an arrest, telling Adam to "shut the fuck up" when he asked what was going on. The whole thing briefly threw the show off balance, and from what other audience members could assess, the suspect was arrested for allegedly masturbating. "Well, I am very funny," quipped Adam after learning the reason for the arrest.
It was later revealed that person arrested was a robbery suspect.
It's not the first time Adam's had criminal activity interrupt his set, just last year he discovered cocaine in an audience member's jacket.
More stand-up ahead...
