Inside a heckler’s head

Poem by Fringe performer Kate Fox

I just want to join in,
be in a double act,
I’ll be the Morecambe to your Wise,
just let me interact.
I’ll shout out the end of your joke,
tell you what I had for tea,
it shouldn’t just be about you,
it could also be about me.
I’ll be your unpaid gag writer,
you don’t need to ask me twice.
'Get off', 'Get your tits out', 'Get on with it',
I’m just offering some advice.
I don’t even need a microphone
I’m loud enough to shout,
I know you were enjoying my contribution
until those bouncers threw me out...
