Pete Holmes cursed out Malia Obama and her friend during his comedy standup gig! The comedian performed at the Comedy Studio in Cambridge, Massachusetts nearby where former president Barack and Michelle’s daughter attends Harvard University. Pete didn’t realize during his sketch that it was Malia in front of them.
Pete, 40, described the series of events that led him to curse out Malia, 21, during his January 23 appearance on Conan. “There were these two hot women, young women, in the front that the whole show were whispering,” he said from watching acts before him.
The Crashing star described whispering as “worse than heckling.” Pete added, “What a Black Mirror nightmare to be doing stand up, and there’s two attractive girls — which is what made every nerd into a comedian — in the front row whispering and laughing at people on the stage, but in a bad way.”
When the comedian finally took the stage he said he confronted Malia and her friend about whispering. “I go on last, and I tell a joke, and they’re whispering and laughing and giggling, and I’m just like, ‘What’s going on? I can see you,’” he said. “They were in the front row. They were in the light. Like the spotlight was on them as well. And I just go, ‘What’s going on? I can see you, please stop.’”
Pete claimed the pair ignored his request to stop whispering. “Then I get a little more like, ‘Shut up. Look at my face. I’m here to help,’” he continued. “But you know, you push Petey too far. I’m like, ‘Please, shut the f**k up.’”
The Pete Holmes Show comedian then took a curtain and threw it over Malia and her friend. “I go, ′I don't care. Enjoy the show however you want. I just don't want to see you,' and I cover them with the curtain,” the comedian revealed.
“I thought this would get a big laugh. Nothing. The whole audience turns on me,” he said. “After the show, I find out it was Obama's daughter. It was Malia! And her hot friend! She looked great. Terrible comedy audience. That's a true story.”
“I’ve never gotten off stage and been like, ‘Why wasn’t I shot?’ Or at least a little laser beam like you’re trying to entertain a cat on my face,” Pete joked. “I covered them. I was like, ‘Shut up, shut up, shut up. You should vanish.’”
