This is the shocking moment a stand-up comedian was attacked on stage by a member of the audience in the middle of his routine.
Comic Steve Brown has hit out at club security who he claims 'stood by' while he was violently attacked while on stage.
He complained security did "almost nothing" after video emerged of an enraged audience member assaulted him during his set - drawing blood.
The shocking footage shows Mr Brown's attacker, who has not yet been identified or arrested, throwing punches at the comic before slashing him with a metal mic stand.
Only after his enraged attacker threw a chair Mr Brown does the audience seem to get involved to try and remove him from the stage.
In a rage the man returns to the stage topless to try and continue the brawl, however a man forced him to turn away.
