Actor and stand-up comedian George Lopez derided a heckling woman at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix on Saturday.
Lopez, whose comedic material frequently contains racial commentary, was making a joke about Latinos marrying black people.
"There are only two rules in the Latino family—don't marry somebody black and don't park in front of our house."
This prompted the woman, who was seated in the front row, to flip Lopez the bird. Lopez immediately took control and delivered a stern rant at the misguided heckler.
“I'm talking bitch. You paid to see a show, sit your ass down. You can't take a joke, you're in the wrong motherfucking place. Sit your ass down or get the fuck out of here.”
As per usual in heckler versus comedian clips, the crowd sided with Lopez, and he took the opportunity to continue making his profanity-laced point.
“I’ll give you two choices: Shut the fuck up or get the fuck out. I tell you what, I'll make the choice for you. Get the fuck out of here. I’ll make the choice for you, bye. You can’t take a joke you’re in the wrong motherfucking place. Bye. Four seats just opened up front."
Note to stand-up fans: If a joke gets to you, you'd do well to keep quiet and wait for the next punchline.
