A comedian has been cancelled by an Edinburgh Fringe venue after he got his penis out on stage and made jokes about disallowed topics on his opening night.
Jerry Sadowitz was scheduled to play at The not very pleasant Pleasance at the Edinburgh
International Conference Centre on Friday and Saturday.
The censorial venue confirmed that it had been pulled because his material does not align with our values.
One female audience member told the Scottish Sun that Sadowitz
called Rishi Sunak a 'paki' and said the economy was awful because it is run by blacks and women.
The event listing carried a warning which read:
This show contains strong language and themes some may find
Revealing the decision, Sadowitz said on Twitter:
Did a show last night, 75 mins, thought it went well. Didn't see any walkouts. Today I'm told my show's been cancelled. Great stuff.
I'm truly sorry for everyone who travelled to see the show tonight.
