• Comedian contestant tells audience to ‘fuck off’ on national television

    Elaine WilliamsOne of the most awkward things in the world to watch – usually – is a stand-up comic crashing and burning. Their jokes are met with silence and they simply don’t know what to do next. The audience doesn’t know what to do next. It’s rough.

    But sometimes, seeing a comic tank is a little more pleasurable.

    Elaine Williams performed on Britain’s Got Talent the other night and, needless to say, did not impress the audience or the judges with her material on hairstyles and garlic bread (I think?). Had she stopped there, she might have earned some sympathy from those watching. But, as you can see in this video, she leaves with a resounding “Oh, fuck off then!” before storming off-stage. Stay classy. Elaine!
