What's the best way to deal with hecklers at comedy shows? There are a few methods, but, after watching this video, it's clear that Russell Brand's is the best ever. In a clip from his recent comedy tour, The Messiah Complex Tour, Brand is faced with an asshole heckler who yells out "Gandhi was a cunt" as Brand is attempting to speak. What follows is an intensely awesome shut down courtesy of Brand, as he pretty much tells the heckler to "shut the fuck up"—in the nicest way ever. 

There's no use in spoiling exactly what Brand says in the video, because it's just way too good not to be experienced by actually watching it. So, you can check out the clip above. The lesson here: Don't ever heckle Russell Brand (or anyone, really) at a comedy show.
