Uncle Vinnie’s Comedy Club in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, says it is filing charges against a customer who threw a drink at a comedian during a performance.
A New Jersey comedy club went viral this week when a patron threw a drink at a comedian during a stand-up performance that turned into a political argument. 
Comedian Ariel Elias was performing at Uncle Vinnie’s Comedy Club in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, last weekend when an unruly customer in the crowd interrupted the set and asked her if she “voted for Donald Trump,” WNYW-TV reported.
“Why would you ask me that knowing I’m the only Jew in this room?”  Elias responded. “Are you trying to get me killed?”
Elias explained to the customer that she lives in New York where her vote “doesn’t matter” and told the crowd to “vote for whoever you want.”

“So you voted for Biden,” the customer shouted. 
“I don’t know why does it matter?” Elias asked, prompting a response from the customer of, “Yes, you did!”
“Yeah, so what?” Elias said. “Why does it matter?”
The customer told Elias she could “tell by her jokes” that she voted for the current president.

The two continued to go back and forth until Elias eventually attempted to move on and continue her standup act. 
As Elias began telling a joke, a can of beer could be seen flying through the crowd toward the stage before smashing into the brick wall behind her. The individual who tossed the drink was reportedly a male companion of the female heckler.
“Come on, you can’t do that,” a man in the background could be heard saying while another man yelled, “Are you f—ing kidding me?”

Elias then picked up the can and chugged the rest of it, earning applause from the crowd. 
“That’s why we are pressing charges totally unacceptable,” the comedy club posted on Twitter in response to a customer who suggested Elias could have been seriously hurt. 
Elias posted a clip of the incident on Twitter, which has been viewed over 5.5 million times as of Friday.
