Comedian gets shot and doesn’t put it in his foot!

After 20 years in the comedy industry, club owner Alison Taylor (44) thought she had seen it all until an over-the-hill comic turned up one night and used basic manners.

“One of my regular headliners cancelled at the last minute, and all my other standbys had gigs, so my only option was an older comic who never quite made it to the big time. With no other choice, I called him up and you wouldn’t believe it, he was polite and on time!” an overwhelmed Alison said.

Stunned at the sight, Alison followed him through the club and watched in disbelief as he said hello and smiled at the guests, thanked her for the opportunity, and promised to do a good job.

“And unbelievably, he did. No bitching about the crowd, the lighting, the last-minute booking, or other comics! He even ran to time. I had to pinch myself to make sure it was real.”

Mouth agape, Alison couldn’t believe what she was seeing, especially when he stayed through the MC’s wrap up and laughed and clapped along.

“He even said thank you at the end of the night, shook my hand and held the door open for me. I almost fainted.”

Sceptics immediately called Alison’s story out as nothing more than a PR stunt and have demanded she release CCTV footage to back up such an outlandish tale.

“Even Big foot has pictures and blurry videos to back up his existence,” cried a whiney bitter old comic who can’t get gigs through no fault of his own (apparently).

Until further proof is forthcoming, comedy agents everywhere call bullshit on this story.
