Adam Newman Becomes the Second Comedian This Year to Find Cocaine on a Heckler

Earlier this month, L.A.-based stand-up Jake Weisman was heckled during a performance and invited the heckler up, only to have him accidentally drop cocaine on stage in front of the entire audience. A video of the set went viral before mysteriously disappearing from YouTube. Now, NY comedian Adam Newman was heckled in this video and put on his heckler's jacket while he went to the bathroom, only to go through the pockets and find – you guessed it – a bag of cocaine. So, this is a trend now, and I think it's safe to assume at this point that all hecklers are on coke.
