Angry U.K. Fans To Sarah Silverman: ‘You’re Over-Hyped’

Matt Damon might be fond of funny lady Sarah Silverman, but her audience in London on Sunday had little love for the comedienne — in fact, they heckled her!

After Sarah reportedly performed only 40 minutes of material at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, an unruly crowd refused to leave the theater and began shouting for their money back, the BBC reported.

In an attempt to soothe the ruffled audience, Sarah reportedly returned to the stage for an impromptu Q&A session with the crowd, where she admitted having no other material prepared for the London crowd.

During the Q&A, the angry fans voiced their disappointment with Sarah’s performance.

The crowd reportedly yelled, “You’re over-hyped Sarah!” and “I’ve seen longer clips on YouTube!” at her.

Sarah responded to the crowd telling them to “go home,” according to the BBC.

London Times reviewer Dominic Maxwell, who saw Sarah’s short performance, said even though her opening act, Steve Agee, fell ill just before the show, it does not excuse Sarah’s negative reaction to the crowd asking for more of the comedian.
