Heckler causes uproar in Sacramento comedy scene

ROSEVILLE, CA - An aggressive heckler who interrupted a standup set during a comedy competion has caused an uproar among local comics.

Comedian Bryan Yang was performing at Mandango's Sports Bar & Grill late Monday night when the heckler forced his way onstage and hurled a racist taunt at Yang before tossing him off the platform.

"Shut the (expletive) up, gook!" the heckler demanded.  "Get the (expletive) off stage!"

The incident, witnessed by a crowd of about 150,  was caught on video and posted to YouTube.

The heckler was Abe Taleb, a manager at Sacramento's Punchline Comedy Club. 

Mandango's owner Scott Ashley said the whole thing was staged.

"Abe got up and we had fun with it and Yang knew about it," Ashley said.  "Everybody knew it was staged."

The YouTube posting set off a heated debate among local comics who insisted the incident was both unplanned and inappropriate.

And the Winners are...

And the Winners are...

 

News10 My Neighborhood ran a week-long sweepstakes contest last week. 

We asked our vusers to submit their definition of HOOPLA, and when they did, their names were automatically submitted into a random drawing.  Then, four lucky winners would receive four passes each to Golfland SunSplash.

This dictionary quiz sweepstakes contest was inspired as part of News10's Reading Connects campaign which is all about connecting with our community to help improve the literacy rate.

Well, we received over 90 responses, and some people were thoughtful enough to email us a sentence with the word HOOPA in it.  Here are some examples:
