Gerard Butler helps Godfrey with a heckler?!? Strange but true, caught at the Comedy Cellar

When I saw my friend Mandy Stadtmiller Tweet that she was having fun at the Comedy Cellar on Thursday night, I thought to myself, hey, I'm heading that way. Except I ended up staying in instead. Bad move on my part. Because I missed seeing this strange-but-true incident late in the evening, in which Godfrey called up actor Gerard Butler to help quiet a pesky heckler. What? Yes. That happened.

Stadtmiller caught part of it on tape (normally, I'd be conflicted about this, because we're not big fans of audience members whipping out their cell phones and cameras in comedy clubs — but Stadtmiller told me she had the club's OK, and so long as you have permission from the club and/or comedian, go for it). She also got Butler and Godfrey to talk about being buddies outside afterward. It all appeared today on Page Six of the New York Post, where Stadtmiller works. Kudos on the scoop! Now roll the clips.

  1. Please – You’re okay with it cause you told her that that’s what happened – how exactly did she get permission BEFORE an event that she didn’t know was gonna happen occurred? Are you telling me when she walked in she asked for permission in case somthing happened? Um, right
    I’ve read her stuff – she’s not that good a reporter (or comic for that matter)

  2. This is such a non-story. Of course she had to be in front of the camera! Mandy’s such a fame-hungry, star-fucking opportunist! She’s like Kambri Crews without a famous husband to promote.

  3. I stopped the video at 2:04 because I couldn’t take the boredom of such a non-story.
    Godfrey is the man. Mandy is so lame. She’s really in front of the camera?
