“Can I just say….a bit overdue.”
“That dude looks like an inbred Senator Palpatine.”
What did you expect Lewis Spears to do? Apologize, stop the show and give people their money back? He was telling all those jokes about Phil in the present tense so, like a good comedian, he reverted to the past tense with the Prince Phillip joke and the Aussie crowd ate it up.
Australia was England’s penal colony for a few hundred years so there’s no love lost. I doubt Lewis gets through the same set if he’s performing that set in a comedy bar in downtown London.
What a moment.
Lewis didn’t seem to be bothered by it, which means he’s a good comedian with terrible short-term memory.
He’s already pimping his next two shows.
Just because Phillip is dead doesn’t mean the jokes have to stop.
