The Stand in Edinburgh, Hot Water Comedy Club in Liverpool, and The Comedy Store in Manchester.
What's the worst heckle you've ever had?
One time I told a joke about shitting myself and after the punchline an old woman at the back said "this isn't for me" and left.

What was the first joke you ever told?
There's a woman at the supermarket, and she's at the till, with three items. The cashier scans the items, and looks at her. Then he looks back at the items, and turns to her and says "You're single."
"That's incredible!" said the woman "How did you know?!"
"Because you're fucking ugly".
