Benny Feldman uses his Tourette’s to heckle himself onstage

Benny Feldman is a clever young comedian from the Philadelphia area who has opened for multiple headliners when they’ve come through the City of Brotherly Love.

But Feldman also was diagnosed with Tourette’s. So he decided to incorporate it into his routine onstage, focusing intently on one-liners, then taking the mic away so he can lean back and let the verbal and facial tics take over. Most often in the form of profanities. Which either can sound like a vulgar catchphrase, or as Feldman says onstage: “I am my own heckler.”

He posted this video just today and it’s already a massive hit on Reddit and WorldStar.
