But sometimes that doesn't matter to someone in the audience, and they decide to ruin the show by interfering with it. Well, if there's anything that's apparent from Hofstetter's YouTube channel, it's that he definitely knows how to deal with hecklers. Even if they're law enforcement.
The rowdy cop, instead of leaving, continues to shoot his mouth off. It gets worse – he steals a drink from another table and tries to start a fight with people in the audience as security escorts him out.
The heckler gets past security and charges back into the room and picks a fight with someone else in the crowd. Hofstetter jokes that the heckler is mad that the Meghan Trainor show was canceled the night before.
An older couple left as the heckling and madness happened. Hofstetter found out later that it was a 40-year-old police veteran that was so angry at the actions of the younger one that he had to leave the room to calm down.

Hofstetter's stance on law enforcement isn't anti-cop, but the bit highlights that there are exceptions to the rule and that cop kind of proves it. He said “that fact that they’re cops and they are trying to pick fights with people is f***ing terrifying.”
Hofstetter hopes that the cop heckler sees the video, feels deeply ashamed and understands that being an officer doesn’t give him the right to bully and intimidate. Oh, and that it’s not a good idea to go after a comedian with 140-plus videos of him taking down idiots.
