Barschak arrested... again

Comedy Terrorist held at Spider-Man premiere

Self-proclaimed Comedy Terrorist Aaron Barschak was arrested for disorderly conduct at the Spider-Man 2 premiere last night.

The 38-year-old was held after dancing around in front of the hoardings in London’s Leicester Square while boy band McFly performed on the cinema terrace.

Security guards swooped on him and he was led away by police, who arrested him and took him to nearby Charing Cross police station for questioning.

Stars at the premiere included Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and Samantha Mumba, who attracted photographers’ attention with her £5million diamond-encrusted spider’s-web dress.

For last night’s stunt, Barschak ditched the peach ballgown he successfully wore to gatecrash Prince William's birthday at Windsor Castle in favour of jeans and a jacket.

He is currently working on another Edinburgh show about the art world – after being jailed for 28 days in November after throwing paint over artist Jake Chapman in an Oxford gallery.
