Lol, this event’s under a section called “Rise to Fame” on his Wikipedia page:Necroing the thread because Nish Kumar, who was mentioned further upthread, did a set for a charity lunch at the Lord's Taverners cricket club, tried to make some shitty Brexit jokes and got absolutely BTFO'd by the audience. There's only clips of the end of his set online, but you can see here he's getting booed and apparently someone threw a bread roll at him:
A highlight is at 00:58 when he says "It's dangerous to perform for a group of people largely descended from people who colonised my ancestors", but the best part is at 2:23 when he says "I'll tell you two more things, and then I'll leave" and a great cheer goes up from the crowd. His face at that moment is pure meme material:

This is bar none one of the worst reactions I've ever seen a comedian have to hecklers. I've seen amateur comedians who've handled hecklers better. He says that in his entire time performing comedy, he's never had food thrown at him, and it's obvious that he doesn't have much experience performing to an audience outside the BBC bubble who won't kiss his arse.
At the end, realising he's lost the crowd, he tries to be defiant and say "I'm not going anywhere, full Bercow!" which goes down like a lead balloon before the event organiser comes on and politely escorts him off:
This guy's face says it all really:
