A Scottish stand-up comedian has somehow found the right response to an audience member who gave an incredibly racist response to a joke.
Janey Godley, who last year welcomed Donald Trump in Scotland with the sign “Trump is a cunt,” was doing a gig at the Wild Cabaret when she asked a couple in the audience,”What is the best thing about travelling through Scotland then?”
The man, from Toronto, replied: “The lack of brown people”.
“I bark a laugh as obviously he’s joking and the woman goes bright red,” Godley wrote on Twitter. “People say s**t at a comedy club in knee jerk nerves sometimes.”
She responded saying: “Ok so that’s a nervous answer, funny and all but seriously you aren’t racist’… (he is staring not laughing) Toronto is the most diverse city on the planetis that why you live outside Toronto? Did they throw you out Klan Boy?”
The man reportedly shrugged his shoulders, staring at her. At that point, Godley, still hoping it was just a joke, told his wife: “So when you married Hitler did you know the depths of his racism?”
But the wife replied: “Well he’s never been so open about it before like this in public.”
To which the comedian finally landed the smackdown:
“Well since you hate brown people and do remember you are a visitor to our country, I hope you have a mild car crash on our roads, not a big one but you need to visit our awesome NHS and when the Somalian surgeon says you need a blood transfusion and a new kidney make sure you mention to him that you only want WHITE [emphasis Godley’s] people’s blood and organs and then let us know how that works out for you…”
Boom. Mic drop.
A Chinese comedian then walked on stage, leaned over and said: “Well, this is awkward eh?”
Other comedians followed, ripping him until the end of the show.
“Comedians never stop resisting this shite. Never,” she concluded.
