This is how to take down a heckler. I personally wouldn’t be able to think on my feet fast enough to deliver such a good response, but Amy Schumer is a professional.
This heckler is a drunk woman who had apparently been shouting things out all night. Schumer wasn’t going to stand for it, and cut her down promptly when she asked where she got her boots.
Schumer is one of those comedians who appears to have come out of nowhere but it’s actually been a long, hard slog for her to reach the mainstream. It helps that she looks wholesome and yet delivers edgy comedy.
Many people will have seen her for the first time on The Roast of Charlie Sheen on Comedy Central, during which she delivered a cutting line to Steve-O about the death of his friend Ryan Dunn.
