“Did you say something about boobs?”
Comedian Joel McHale, who about 30 seconds earlier had indeed told a boob joke, shifted from shock to ignorance when a large-breasted woman walked up to the stage, interrupted his set, and sloppily bared her breasts to him.
The moment, awkward as it was, was the evening’s lone flicker of spontaneity.
McHale, who hosts The Soup and stars in the NBC sitcom Community, both delighted and disappointed at Pechanga with the same 70-minute set he’s been performing since 2008. Fans seeing McHale for the first time laughed at jokes about other E! celebrities -- Kim Kardashian has a big butt; Hugh Hefner is old and inexplicably wears a boat captain's hat -- but after paying $65 a ticket, probably deserved something fresh.
To be fair, there were some winners in McHale's arsenal, particularly his story about helping his penny-pinching dad shop for a casket at Costco.
Thankfully the heckler made sure McHale wasn't the only bust the crowd saw.
