TikTok Torn After American Comedian Goes Off on Unimpressed British Audience Member

Comedian Akaash Singh shared a TikTok video of his interaction with the bored Brit, and he didn't hold back.

What are some of the worst things that can happen to a comedian on stage?

Being heckled by an audience member is definitely top five, but what about having an audience member who is so unimpressed with the show they can't even manage to form words of disdain?

Instead, they cross their legs, plaster on a straight face coupled with a casual eye roll while in a seat up front and center. Something like that might make a comedian long for the days of the good old heckle.

Unfortunately, that's what happened to comedian Akaash Singh who tried his best to look past a bored British audience member sitting front row during his set.

When the gentlemen began to look down at his hands and completely ignore the show, Singh lost it.

He later said in a TikTok video:

"There's no way your f**king left hand is more interesting than what we're doing up here for an hour."

Here's the TikTok of Singh and the bored Brit:

What do you think they talked about in the car?

Singh probably didn't set out to dedicate any portion of his set to the young man in the front row.

What started as the comedian harmlessly asking the Brit and his partner how they met, turned into what many commentors called a "roast". After the Brit's partner replied the two met on Hinge, the comedian followed with a joke and said he shouldn't be nervous.

The conversation went downhill from there.

The Brit responded by affirming he was not nervous which then opened the flood gates for an already irked Singh, who then inquired [if not nervous then] "what are you?"

In the video right before Singh shared a clip from his stand up, we can see the comedian talking to a few of his comedy colleagues about their experiences with the challenging chap sitting front row.

One comedian told Singh, "He didn't even look at me," and another comedian shared he tried to engage with the man by saying to him "You look like you read a lot of books," only to have the Brit respond with, "Yeah, I wish I was reading one right now."

In the five-minute video that has now gained over a million likes and views on TikTok, you can see an irritated Singh rant about the uninterested audience member and the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

There were thousands of comments on the video, with many torn as to how to respond.

A few felt as though the Brit had won, saying he managed to get under the comedian's skin without having said a word, however some felt the audience member deserved the "roasting."

Regardless of if you thought the rant was warranted, or if you feel the whole ordeal was unnecessary, it looks like the comedian got a kick out of it all and felt the gent had it coming.

As for the Brit in the front row?

Probably not so much.
