The Most Epic Heckler Reversal Ever

I'm late to the game on this one, but if you haven't seen it I do recommend watching comedian Bill Burr eviscerate a booing Philadelphia crowd for over 12 minutes, leading into a standing ovation.

For a little context:
Opie and Anthony’s Traveling Virus was a touring comedy show that made the rounds in 2006 and 2007. It was a Lollapalooza-style festival, featuring scores of comedians.

During the first year, the Philadelphia crowd was… difficult (go figure), and there was a lot of drunken booing and heckling. Veteran Boston comic Bill Burr watched from backstage as his colleagues were heaped with abuse.

Pissed-off, Burr took his turn onstage and the crowd began giving him the same treatment. But he wasn’t having it, and launched into one of the most amazing diatribes ever recorded...
