    Are people really this gullible? This guy hires hecklers to make his act more interesting and it's pretty obvious considering his performance normally revolves around them. It's really common these days and pretty easy to tell.

    The production house on this "special" needs better blood. This looked like shit! No backlight, variable ambient light... goddamn. If it's better during the final cut then this clip should have waited to be presented. This shit production is more amateur than my own comedy act. It's been weeks since I watched one of his BR-channel videos, so, it won't be too difficult to ignore his Netflix special. Oh... wait...

    9 dias atrás man. You never had to work yourself back into your own material? That's what has made your claim to fame. I thought you thought fast? Also, if this is a "TV Special" then you might want to invest in cable. I may be an asshole but I can't be the only fan who is tired of your crutches. You're a decent comedian, a good professional entertainer, but this is just... gross. And boring. Get back to good material instead of relying on the audience for attention. I assume that's not what you mean to do but it's been years since you haven't.

    IDK, I'm starting to think he picks people out of the crowd that are murmuring to one another... I never see this level in other comics. Seems like Steve Hofstetter is just neurotic and disagreeable. He puts up good arguments but when you see how many he has you should start to wonder is the problem alll of them? Or is he the problem?

    Sorry for this, but for whoever is doing the rather excellent job of sub-titling these videos, I need to point out that there are two versions of "all right". That one indicates that all of the things are correct, as in, "your answers on this quiz are all right!". The other, "alright", indicates that everything is good. "Yeah man, that skateboard trick went really south, but I'm alright". This version is also the one used as a thing to say to connect thoughts. Similar words are "like", "yeah", "ya know".... Word nerds see "all right" when Steve says, "alright" and it gives us the chills.

    Hecklers piss me off when I pay good $ to take a date to a show. But, It is a fantastic show to see a comedian DESTROY a heckler and then watch Security escort their drunk asses out of the venue. I feel it makes an ok comedian a God when he/she can destroy them as they leave the venue.

    I have this great idea💡! Steve. You should just have a channel dedicated to people who want to heckle you. Just let them come on here and give it their best shot, then you can comment on their post, and roast them! Maybe then they'll stop f*cking with your shows! It's genius!

    Dude I'm loving the outtakes I wish this was a thing that people posted more of because you're pretty funny and everybody knows you for hecklers and stuff but dealing with shit like that in the moment is really the funniest thing that can exist. You're quick on your feet and other than hecklers this is another good way to Showcase that Talent. I don't know why speech-to-text is capitalizing random words but that's fine. See you in Boise, god willing, but god doesn't exist so it's still up in the air for now. .

    I was in choir in high school. We got to do a Christmas concert on the local PBS station. That meant about 120 people standing in close ranks on risers under bright TV lights in these old wool choir robes. About half way through we had our first casualty. Someone fainted... then someone else. It was only about 7 people, 6 girls and a guy... I wondered at the time if some of it might have been hysterical copycats. Anyway, they had us do a couple takes of each song. Most people wouldn't have noticed, but if you knew the people you'd notice that they'd spliced bits together from different takes and one chorus would have someone standing there and the next chorus they'd just be gone. I've got a friend who used to do stand up. He is the worst heckler I've ever known. He heckled one female comedian and she got really upset. She didn't realize it but he thought he was flirting.
