Kevin Bridges has promised to reimburse punters and donate money to a homeless charity after he was forced to cut his show short due to illness and hecklers.
The Scottish stand-up comedian was performing in Brighton on Wednesday evening but didn’t finish his performance.
Writing on Twitter later that night, he told fans he wasn’t feeling well and the constant jeers from a small group in the crowd only made matters worse.
The 32-year-old apologised and said he would refund everyone in the audience and also donate leftover cash to a charity.

Kevin wrote on Twitter: “My apologies to everyone who came to see me tonight at the Dome.
“I have been ill for a few days but I didn’t want to cancel the gigs as I felt the Adrenalin of performing could carry me through, as it usually does and did tonight for the majority of the show.
“People shouting nonsense throughout the gig is something I’m well used to after 15 years in stand up but tonight I hit a wall physically and maybe mentally and I’m truly sorry to everyone who I let down by finishing early.”
The comedian apologised and vowed to refund punters
His fans soon rallied around him, saying he didn’t need to say sorry and heaped praise on his performance.
One wrote: “Absolutely no refund or apology required Kevin thank you! Your performance was just legendary but it seems a minority of local student fraternity lack respect for talent (and other humans) and got themselves a little high on Babysham, bless!!”

While a second happy punter added: “Didn’t let me and the Mrs down at all. We’d got our money’s worth long before the end. Loved it.
“By all means give it to homeless charity in Brighton though, there’s plenty who need help. Anyway, get well soon pal. p.s. Your Joseph material is gold.”
