"He even, at one point, took an audience member's phone to check for dick pics."

Desmarais knows how to control a heckler. But it wasn't as though the heckling came unsolicited, as audience participation was influential in this set.

How much of the Canadian's pre-arranged material we actually heard, and how much of it was shaped by the audience's will to interrupt, we'll never know. But it wasn't a negative; in fact it was enjoyable to watch Demarais roll with the punches. He even, at one point, took an audience member's phone to check for dick pics and ended up calling a contact, which for what was at stake, turned out to be quite funny.
