Bellamy best known for his work on Russell Simmons Def Comedy Jam and Fastlane says every good comedian goes through their share of taunting, but says the way he handled his worst heckling incident was by making even more jokes.
Bellamy recalls doing a stand-up routine where a particularly wild, rude woman in the audience began heckling him, but he kept his composure and fired a joke right at her.
Says Bellamy: That woman was so annoying I just looked at her and said, Look lady, Im trying to do my job. Do I ever come to the strip club and put oil on the pole? After that the crowd went crazy and she sat down and shut up real fast. I have no idea where that joke came from so quickly but it was hilarious!
Bellamy gets a chance to give rookie comedians some pointers as the host of Last Comic Standing 5 which premieres June 13.
