What a Dick!

Davidson outwitted by boy Scout heckler

Jim Davidson was furious after being put in his place – by a heckling boy Scout.

The 53-year-old comic was said to be seething after receiving foul-mouthed abuse from the junior punter during a packed pantomime.

Davidson, in character as Dick Whittington, asked the Kent audience: ‘Do you know who I am?”

And the Scout, in full uniform, ‘brought the house down’ by yelling back: ‘Yes, you’re a fucking wanker.’

According to The Sun, Davidson spent the rest of the half with a scowl on his face. He went to try to find the scoutmaster in the foyer during the interval ‘to give him a piece of his mind’, but to no avail.

The comic, who used to be a Scout himself, was apparently left ‘speechless’, with an unnamed source saying: ‘He didn’t like the fact he was being laughed at.’

The newspaper has now put an appeal out to the lad, whose interruption came during the Sunday matinee performance at the 920-seat Orchard Theatre in Dartford.
