Just wanting a general consensus to settle an argument.

At a wedding/party/function, what do you think if somebody yells out "funny" one liners from the audience in the middle of the speech?

If it is actually funny then I don't mind at all but if the person is really drunk and is trying to be funny and they just are not then I think they should shut up!

It is so rarely funny and mostly I see it as quite pathetic, look at me sort of behaviour.

Depends, it can be quite off putting for the speaker, unless they're quick on their feetand come back with something.

Was at a wedding recently where the best man said "groom had his feelings of love hidden deep inside and it took the bride to come along and she sucked it out of him."

I dont think he realized what he had said, until several people started snickering and saying "sucked it out." and laughed.

It was great, everyone was laughing including the bride and groom.

Rude.

If you have something to say, then get up in front of everyone and say it - don't just yell it out.

If its funny then great because some people certainly dribble on when they are making a speech sometimes and breaks it up. If not funny then not so good and the person just looks like a dropkick.

Yelling out something "funny" to embarass someone is the height of being a bogan knob jockey.  Get up on stage if you think you're so bleeding witty mad.gif

My father does this.

Only the things he says are not usually that funny.

I find it rude and ignorant.

Depends on how funny the one liners are and what the relationship is between the yeller and the speech giver.

Absolutely rude, funny or not.  I always cringe.  I dislike hecklers at any time!

In general, they think they are much funnier than they are.

I think its pretty annoying. Once is ok, but then when they keep doing it you just want to go tell them to STFU.

Once may be witty if it is actually funny. Otherwise shut up and get the speeches over with already.

A very clever one liner can be hilarious if delivered with impeccable timing.  

Mostly it's a drunken idiot who has far more fatih in his humour than there is.  

Though I admit 20 minutes into ONE speech at a wedding on Friday night - a few funny one liners from the audience would have been welcome.

I was at a Tom Gleeson performance and he had one yobbo yelling out comments, thinking he was the comedian in the room. The first time Gleeson let it go but there after he fair gave it back to him each time which in itself was hysterical. You don't mess with the professional comedians, they can make you look like a fair idiot.
