Comedian Andrew Doyle Gets Beer Thrown In Face At Edinburgh Fringe (VIDEO)

If you're wishing you were at the Edinburgh Festival right now, you might want to watch the video above - and think again.

Because as it shows, Edinburgh comedy isn't all glamour, fun and deep-fried haggis, you know. Oh no.

There was comedian Andrew Doyle, merrily performing his stand-up hour Whatever It Takes, when he found himself dealing with some increasingly chatty, and increasingly drunk, audience members. As you occasionally have to do, when you're a stand-up comic.

But the final straw? Well, you'll have to watch it to find out (warning: there are some rude words along the way).

Doyle acquits himself wonderfully, saying: "Sometimes you need a bit of theatricality.... Telling jokes is just boring. I think it's much better when you're physically assaulted."

A tip of the hat to you, Mr Doyle - you're a consummate professional.
