Rampaging Jim Gaffigan Punches Out Random Audience Member

Mr. and Mrs. Gaffigan in happier timesThe Gotham Comedy Club suddenly turned into the UFC Octagon last week when Jim Gaffigan put down his bacon bits mid-set to maul a rude dude.

Time Out was there for the frenzied melee:

Jim Gaffigan looks like a bull when charging from the stage to grapple with a heckler. Even while Gaffigan and the drunken asshole are wrestling up the ramp near the emergency exit, some part of you still wants to believe it's a joke. Then the asshole gets Gaffigan on the ground and gets a couple of good shots at the Hot Pockets guy! The management steps in just as sane audience members and the loudmouth’s beefy pals move past their shock to get involved. According to one of the Gotham workers afterward, the guy said something to Gaffigan's wife. So one more piece of learning: Don't talk shit to Jim Gaffigan's wife.

I heard Gaffigan played a set at the same spot the following night. So the AUDIENCE won!
