Steve Hofstetter talks hecklers, Reddit, dealing with drunks and more



Comedian Steve Hofstetter saw his recognition get a massive boost recently when a video of him epically dismantling a heckler went viral by landing on the top spot of Reddit's front page.

After that, his life is "forever changed," he said in a recent interview. "Not just Reddit, but the total virality of that clip and a few subsequent ones. I went from hoping to get gigs to deciding which ones I take. It was a tipping point, for sure."

You can catch Hofstetter (and hopefully not heckle him) at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 20, at the Pegasus Lounge in Tampa. Tickets are $15. Click here for details.
