The comedienne turned the heckler into a figure of fun during her Wednesday night concert.

Funny girl Amy Schumer got serious during a stand-up show in Sweden on Wednesday night (31Aug16) when a drunken heckler became offensive.

The 35-year-old was performing in Stockholm when an audience urged her to "Show me your t**s!"

Schumer halted the show, asked fans in the audience to point out the heckler, and turned the spotlight on him, asking, "What do you do for a living?"

When the man revealed he was "in sales", the comedienne joked, "How's it working out?"

She then warned the man, "If you yell out again, you're going to be yelling 'show me your t**s' to people in the parking lot, because you're gonna get thrown out, mother f**cker."

But the audience member clearly had not learned his lesson and when he shouted out again, Amy asked security staff to escort him out of the venue.

"Did you just yell out again? Oh, now it's time. Bye. I'm going to miss you so much," she joked as staff kicked the unruly guy out.

Schumer even had the audience decide whether the man should stay. They overwhelmingly cheered for him to leave the venue.

The comedienne had to kick animal rights activists out of a book signing event in New York last month (Aug16), after they refused to let her explain herself as they protested Amy's decision to wear a fur-lined jacked in January (16).

She was promoting her new book The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo at the Barnes & Noble store in Union Square, as the noisy protesters challenged her, highlighting the fact she was photographed wearing a coat made by Canada Goose in January (16). The protesters claimed the firm engages in animal cruelty.

When it became clear the activists in the store simply wanted to create a disturbance, they were asked to leave by security staff and then escorted off the premises.

A representative for Amy has since told TMZ the Trainwreck star was given the Canada Goose jacket as a gift, and as soon as she learned about allegations the company harms animals she stopped wearing it.
