Joe Lycett was ‘quizzed by police’ over an ‘offensive’ joke he made.
The comedian took to Twitter on June 21 and told his followers about the incident, which officials had ‘a duty to investigate’.
Lycett wrote: “So someone came to my tour show a few weeks back and was offended by one of the jokes. And their perfectly understandable response to this was… to call the f***ing police.
“To be fair to them, the fuzz was very nice about it and all but felt that had a duty to investigate. This involved me writing a statement explaining the context of the joke for them; I particularly enjoyed putting the words ‘giant donkey d***’ into a message to a police detective.
“Charmed, and hopefully amused, the rozzers have since closed the matter.”
He went on to assure fans that his comedy tour will continue, adding: “You’ll be pleased to know that the joke remains firmly and proudly in the show. The tour continues until September. Unless I am jailed.”
Hilariously, the 33-year-old shared a screenshot of the exchange he had with police officers. It shows that officials ‘now consider this matter closed’.
After reading what happened, many of Lycett’s fans took to the comments, with many saying it had them ‘crying of laughter’.
“Why would you pay to see a comedian to then report them to the police bc you were offended? Like, they support you enough to buy a ticket to see you?” one commented. “Make it make sense people.”
Another added: “This bit still has me crying with laughter when I think of it! What a sad little life Jane.”
