Talk about a buzzkill! During one of Erik Griffin’s comedy shows, an audience member interrupted the ‘Workaholics’ star’s set to heckle him — and give him a big slap in the face! Watch the crazy video here!
A woman practically made Erik Griffin‘s comedy show into an episode of Jerry Springer! The Workaholics actor apparently wasn’t funny enough for her in his stand-up routine at The Laughing Derby in Louisville, Ky., and she had no problem confronting him about it. But things escalated quickly after she spoke her mind to Erik, and suddenly she was swinging away at him!
Erik managed to ignore the woman who had been heckling him the entire night, but before finishing his set, sources told TMZ that Erik made sure to call her out for her rudeness. “There’s a stupid b**** at my show right now,” he told the audience, “and she don’t know how to leave. You disrespected the show — all these people paid trying to have a good time, and you in here like ‘ehhh.'”
Considering the woman was already annoyed with Erik, his comments didn’t exactly go over well. Because of the disturbance she caused — and the fact that she wouldn’t leave — Erik wasn’t going to back down. But once Erik got a little too close to her, she took a swing…and totally slapped him!
“Call the police, she hit me, and it’s on tape,” Erik yelled upon getting hit. “And I’m pressing charges too!” Watch the whole thing happen below!
Despite Erik’s threat, he didn’t end up pressing charges against the woman. Once she got her slap in, the woman finally made her way out after relentless pleas from the audience and Erik for her to leave. After the whole incident, Erik couldn’t help calling the woman “a hot mess” to TMZ. We have to say, we completely agree!
Do you think Erik deserved to be slapped, HollywoodLifers? Should he have pressed charges? Let us know what you think below!
