    when you heckle a comic, especially someone like Tosh, or Louis CK, or Chris Rock, etc. don't expect to be showered in rainbows and unicorn dust.

    Here is how Louie handled a heckler in his show:

      that would be ran out of town, with this type of thinking.  

      Carlin said it best.   Politically correct speech is just a way to limit 1st amendment freedoms.  Period.  You don't just wander in to a comedy club and talk back to the person on the stage.   The show is not about you, so if you don't like it, just leave.  

      "That's fine if you don't get it, or you don't like it, but don't ruin it for everyone else that does."  --Bill Hicks, while dealing with a heckler.

        "It all depends on how you craft it." as to whether a joke is funny. He also handled hecklers brilliantly.

        However I don't recall him threatening individual audience members with bodily injury.

        And yes, I do think that "wouldn't it be funny if..." is a great way to say "I'd like to see this horrible thing happen to you." "I want you to think about what it would be like if this happened to you. Right here and right now. Visualize this happening to you and then come up with a snappy retort. You fucking Bitch!"

        That's what he was saying to her and by extension to every woman in the audience who might object to his defense of sick humor.

      Tosh asked the audience for suggestions.  A guy yelled out "Rape!"

      That's when the woman said, "Rape jokes aren't funny!"
