Stand-up comedian Nish Kumar was booed off stage, and even had a bread roll thrown at him, after making jokes about Brexit and politicians at a charity event.
The presenter of BBC Two’s The mash report was performing at the Lord’s Taverners annual charity cricket Christmas lunch in London but his jokes about Brexit did not go down well with the audience.
Kumar then made a joke about former House of Commons speaker John Bercow, who was in the audience.
He told the crowd at the Grosvenor House hotel: “I’m not going anywhere. Absolutely not. I’m full Bercowing it. Absolute Bercow. I know you want me to do it but I’m not gonna leave. Absolutely not. Absolutely not.”
The comic is shown in video footage posted online refusing to leave the stage, whilst being booed by the audience.
Kumar was then joined by the host of the event who politely escorted him from the stage.
As he was escorted from the stage the audience started throwing bread rolls at him.
