Columbia, South Carolina – On Sunday, Comedian Steve Brown was attacked by an unidentified man while doing a show at the Comedy House at the 2700 block of Decker Blvd. in Columbia. Apparently a man under the influence was asked by Brown what was wrong during the show and he got mad. The man first struck a female companion and another woman who were trying to calm him down before he went up on stage and attacked Brown. Brown dodged multiple blows from the man who got a microphone stand and swung it at Brown several times and then he grabbed a stool and threw it at Brown. Brown says that he told the man, you are going to get tired and then I’m going to knock you out.
Several men from the audience went up on stage and neutralized the incident. Brown later posted on Facebook that an unidentified crazy man was not being heckled, but that he had “just got up and lost his mind”. Brown reported no injuries, but complained about a lack of security at the Comedy House.
Tumika LaSha posted a Facebook (FB) video that went viral when Brown was being attacked on stage by the man. Also, Sharad McNulty post on his FB, Brown’s response after the unfortunate attack. Brown was at the Comedy House doing weekend shows, which were packed to capacity.
Police have not released any information about the Comedy House incident or if anyone was taken into custody.
