The woman who threw a drink at Eddie Griffin during his set at Tommy T's Comedy Club in Pleasanton, California on July 13, is finally speaking out, and she's asking for an apology and compensation from the comedian and the club.
After the show started, Griffin began singling out Walshe.
As the couple stood to leave, angry crowd members followed Griffin’s actions and also pelted them with drinks.
Club security offered the couple no protection as they fled outside and ran to their vehicle.
Eddie was doing his job and making the audience laugh and doing a great job at it. ALL races, religions, genders and stereotypes are considered equal on stage and are all open for material.
If you sit front row at a comedy show, it is widely known that chances are, you might become part of the act.
The incident is one of several recent confrontations between comedians and audience members, including another drink-throwing incident involving comedian Tammy Pescatelli and the Daniel Tosh rape joke controversy.
An angry audience member reported on Facebook that Tracy Morgan went on a tirade during a stand-up show allegedly saying that gay was a choice and that he would stab his son if he found out he was gay.
Morgan's comments sparked a huge debate about going too far in comedy.
Walshe is seeking medical counseling for her injuries.
Since the ordeal she has suffered from extreme feelings of anxiety and lack of sleep.
Walshe and Champlin have retained the Law Offices of Ruben P. The couple seeks an apology and compensation from Griffin’s and Tommy T’s Comedy Club.
A lawsuit has not been filed to date because the couple want to first allow Griffin and Tommy T’s Comedy Club the opportunity to make amends without litigation.
