Last night in Colorado Ralphie May was escorted out of his own stand-up show by police. Turns out the comedian over-indulged and was a bit too high and wasted according to some fans in the audience. The show started off well enough but when it was May’s time to take the stage things slowed down. May was reportedly so under the influence he took a longer than normal time to take to the stage and mic. Then when he got on stage, he reportedly couldn’t string words together, finish jokes, or remember what he just said.
The frustrated audience started to yell at the comedian, demanding he tell jokes, some then asked for refunds. May was able to finish the show amongst the complaints, but in the end, police had to be called to keep the order. They later escorted the comedian out of the venue.
Representatives for the comedian stated, “He was like a kid in a candy store, being in Colorado for the first time since pot became legal.” They then joked about conspiracy theories and suggested the comedian might’ve been drugged by Bill Cosby.
It’s clear May’s team is taking this news in stride with the jovial nature of their response. TMZ posted some footage of the comedian leaving the venue joking with the police and briefly engaging with loyal fans that stuck around after the show to talk to him. May then jokingly stating that he didn’t even get into the dirty parts of his act.
