Maximum offence

Comics try to drive audience away

Two Edinburgh comedians are trying to be so offensive their entire audience walks out.

Kieran Butler and Austin Low promise £1 to anyone who stays the course of their show at the Green Room, but their aim is to be so tasteless they don’t have to shell out money.

Their debut show last night include a song about Madeline McCann – complete with choreography – and another called Everybody Wants To Be Raped.

Guest Rick Shapiro delivered a hate-filled rant at the audience, while Paul Provenza - director of The Aristocrats movie - delivered some ‘stomach churning’ material about pus.

Provenza, pictured, then handed out pound coins to the remaining punters – after rolling the coins around in his underpants.
