LaSha said Brown warned the man, “This ain’t what you want.” But the man charged Brown regardless.
In the video LaSha captured, the audience member who has been identified only as “Marvin” is on swinging wildly at Brown.
Marvin, who police say was drinking alcohol, threw the mic stand, which clipped Brown before soaring into the audience and striking several patrons, injuring two of them.
Marvin picked up a wooden stool and hurled that at Brown before two men rushed on stage to stop him from injuring anyone else and to calm him down.
Marvin stormed off stage but is later seen coming back to finish what he started.
Brown was upset about the lack of security in comedy clubs, posting on Instagram that the incident is a “reminder of why these comedy clubs should all be well equipped with professional security to protect us entertainers who bring their club so much money.”
“I thank God for looking out for me and giving my old a$$ the ability to bob and weave because this could have ended in horrible way,” Brown added.
Watch The Attack:
Brown was heckled by his comedian friends for the attack but he seemed to take it all in stride. Which is what you’re supposed to do when a comic singles you out.
